    Optimizing RAM and SSD for best performance.


    I have Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52 laptop. It has Core i7 8th Gen 8750H Processor. It came with 8GB RAM/16GB Intel Optane/1TB HDD/Windows 10/NVIDIA GeForce GTX Graphics 1050 Ti 4 GB GDDR5.

    I recently removed 16GB optane stick from my laptop and installed SSD 970 EVO Plus NVMe M.2 250GB as the main C partition which has windows and installed software. I also installed same 8GB RAM of the same Hynix brand and model number that my laptop was initially equipped with.

    Everything is running fine. I am sharing my virtual memory performance options settings.

    The C partition is my Samsung SSD
    The D partition is of the original HDD of my laptop
    The E partition is my old C partition which had window installation and software. I used the Samsung migration tool to directly migrate the windows installation and the installed software.

    My query is, should I do any additional settings so that my SSD and RAM perform their best?

    I would just let windows manage the page file. Since you've swapped out the drive, you could delete it then recreate it using automatic size and let windows manage it. These days on modern fast hardware, you don't gain much by tweaking the pagefile.

    My answer per those setting you show is no. Leave them alone and let Windows manage them. I see no reason the change them and there's really nothing to be gained. Back in the XP days, people would manage the RAM but Window is now much better at handling RAM so no need to manually manage the page file anymore. For the performance options, again, leave it set to Programs unless you have some background services you need optimized.

    My two cents.

    You've got pagefile set on D: drive which is a HDD. Set that to none.

    Thanks. I set the settings to automatic.
