    You can try it and see. Use Process Lasso (free) or Process Monitor to monitor it.

    All of my systems have between 24-64 GB of RAM - depending on the application.



    @Callender - just another piece of software to sell.
    I used it in the past on Windows 7. It worked great. On my Windows 10 machine it doesn't make much difference possibly because I have committed the cardinal sin of using a memory optimizer instead.

    Cereberus,

    I wasn't insulting you! I'm so sorry if you felt that way but that was the total opposite of my intent. I was informing the crowd about your superior credentials. How could you have taken it in any other way?

    By the way, what does SFA mean? I know it means RAMDisks are really wonderful and out-of-this-world or they are worthless and the people who developed them deserve a special place in hell.

    SFA...Hmm....

    Sweet Fu**ing All?

    Sweet Furry Animals?

    Smelly Fat A**

    Am I close?

    I have tried RAMDisks - they do SFA in my experience.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're saying to each other but if it's what I think it is...Watch your mouth! This is a family place.

    Compumind, I've been using Process Lasso for quite a while and it didn't seem to have the effect that I was hoping for. I did install MSI Utility Mode 2.0 and I saw an huge, immediate speed upgrade. I don't know why the latency between the GPU and the CPU has any relationship with the browser but my Chrome browser would open pages instantaneously.

    I also finally was able to set up a RAM disk. I put my PDF program on it and it made a huge speed boost. It would take about 6-7 seconds to open a PDF with my PDF program after I terminated the PDF program. It still took about 2-3 seconds to open the PDF program but everything else was lightning fast. I can't believe that people haven't used RAM disks for such purposes before.

    Now, I'm wondering what programs that a RAM disk would make a difference to. I don't want to test each one of my 100 programs to see. It would be nice if a list was made that people would contribute to. If a RAM disk made a difference, say so.

    @CerebralFreeze -

    My friend, many people would pray for that amount of RAM in your system!

    If the Windows pagefile is set so that the OS manages virtual memory, you do not need a ramdiak - in fact, it will decrease your performance.
    Please purge your system of any ramdisk traces - this is most important.

    There is one program (and only one) that I recommend which will keep your system in peak shape. It is called ProcessLasso and it actually works!

    Here is the website - they have a free version, too - study it -

    Bitsum. Real-time CPU Optimization and Automation

    How Free Is Free? What is Freemium?

    After removing all traces of the ramdisk, including registry entries, you might want to consider giving this a go.
    Set the parameters so that ProBlance, SmartTrim and PerformaceMode are enabled. Then reboot.

    Post back with your results. It may take a few open concurrent applications to realize the benefits.

    HTH,

    Well, that's BS. Why do people make stuff up? (I'm not accusing you. You probably heard it from someone else.) They make a reasonable guess but make it sound like a fact.

    I can tell you in no uncertain terms that 64-bit Windows 10 will do what a RAM disk does by default. How can it? When a program is terminated, Windows 10 will remove it from RAM. So, when the CPU reads the program off the SSD and writes the program back into the RAM, how can that be faster than the program already ready to go in the RAM?

    Does Windows 10 somehow know that I use the program so frequently that it will keep the program in RAM even though I terminated the program?

    Frankly, I think Windows 10 is a scam. They really haven't done anything fundamentally new in the last few decades (I mean this genuinely) but they convince people & companies to keep buying version after version by wrapping the box with different pictures.

    1. Is it true that in 2020, 64-Bit windows 10 will do most of what a RAM disk does by default?
    2. This thread is in the wrong section.

    @CerebralFreeze

    Just out of interest what program are you using for PDF's?

    Not everything is etched in stone. That's why I wanted you to try ProcessLasso.
    I just built a new W10 Pro system for a friend and it opens PDF's extremely fast - no Ramdisk there. Then again, the system is new.

    What program are you using for the Ramdisk? I would like to benchmark it.

    FWIW.
