darn it!, at this time i only use my pc for typical everyday school work and some casual gaming. the only benefit i see myself out of this is using this as a boot disk for w7.

...just use Suspend to RAM or Hibernation.

What about something like tinycore on an ssd? it's only 50 Mb, boots up then uses ramdisk for windows. Just and idea, and I certainly wouldn't do it.

Pointless. You would need 32GB+ to make any difference. Even then its not something you really need.

Yes, I use ImDisk and not the program from the video but its the same thing.

I have a ramdisk image of my skyrim install that I load up every time I play the game. Load times are near isntant and just about everything else in the game run really smooth with no hiccups at all.

ALl you really need is 16gb to play most games as most games are around 10gb anyways. Ramdisks can be used an a lot of other useful ways though too, like movie editing if you want to put the raw files on it for lag free editing.

Just buy an SSD. (Or use Sleep mode)

I was trying to convince WD to add more RAM to a model of drive, then add some prefetching firmware to it so that the drive could start preloading your OS before it reaches the boot menu.

I never did get a response.

I have an M4. It was just an idea. And tbh, I would love to know if it would work.

That ramdisk software used in the video is expensive for a home user.
post #18 of 31
dont get me wrong, its amazing, but its really only practical for people that could actually benefit from such speeds. Yea it would be cool to load up skyrim quick, but i think people who do 3d rendering that takes hours/days could see some crazy gains from this.
