Readers can easily recall reading about the AMD branded memory receiving excellent praise from HTL staff reviewer George Cella earlier this year, and AMD announced today that they have teamed up with Dataram software to give systems even more flexibility and performance with a RAMDisk.
The RAMDisk software package provides users with a simple interface to that reserves a block of your system memory and turns it into a virtual hard drive that is recognized by Windows® with a drive letter (like C:\).A RAMDisk would certainly accelerate the loading times of games and commonly used applications, and other demanding software suites, while eliminating the unwanted and writing of temporary files to your SSD, therefore extending life expectancy and increasing performance.
"This collaboration has also allowed us to develop a free, no-strings-attached trial of the AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk for you to download. This version allows anyone to create a RAMDisk that can reserve up to 4GB of your RAM, while users with AMD Radeon™ memory will automatically be able to reserve up to 6GB. Finally, enthusiasts have the option of upgrading to the AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk Xtreme, which allows users to create RAMDisks up to 64GB for under $20USD .When creating a RAMDisk drive with this software, it is important not to use up all your available system memory for your RAMDisk. In order for Windows® and other applications to function properly, they need at least 2GB-4GB set aside depending on the amount of system memory you have installed."
