Re: It does sound like a good addition

Assuming it does what it says on the tin, it's a perfect fit for cache chips in HDDs, SSDs and RAID controllers where even in small sizes it can be extremely useful.

In fact El Reg even announced some years back that LSI were starting to use it for journal memory

This HBA at least seems to have an everspin chip on it. Barely visible in the second pic... looking for a better one on t'internet this HBA seems to come in varieties both with the everspin chip and regular DRAM combined with a supercap (probably cheaper to make).
