I know next to nothing about Windows.
In Linux (and probably any other UNIX system),
ECHO(1) FSF ECHO(1)
echo - display a line of text
echo [OPTION]... [STRING]...
NOTE: your shell may have its own version of echo which will supercede
the version described here. Please refer to your shell's documentation
for details about the options it supports.
In the Linux case, I can run:
$ echo SOME DATA HERE | gpg -e -r jdbeyer >gpg.out
and produce an output file that can be decrypted to produce the original.
Surely that would have fit a pipe, so nothing need be written out to disk.
