Gavotte Ramdisk ??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hi guys...

do we really need it nowadays ?

Gavotte Ramdisk

sure I am not suffering from bad performance with 8GB DDR3 1333, but I was just wondering if using it will boost up my system even more ??

also if there is any benefit to have, can I assign Gavotte Ramdisk[ to use a usb stick instead ??


what will be better if this is doable, to assign it to RAM or to a USB stick ??


what do you think ??

Well if you have a very I/O intensive application you can't get any better than a RAM disk. If you don't have a specific purpose for it, don't bother. For instance, I use one to run my minecraft server out of because it's a very I/O intensive game. The only bottleneck at this point is really internet connection, so over LAN it's very good.
I'm not sure what you mean by assigning it to a USB.

He is confused the solid state nature of a RAM based USB drive with that volitle RAM connected directly to the CPU.

I'm not sure what you mean by assigning it to a USB.

as you know that with Windows Vista and Seven, we can use a USB stick for ReadtBoost, so I wonder if Gavotte Ramdisk can use the stick as RAM also ??

or in this case ReadyBoost is better ? ( here I am not negotiating the ReadyBoost benefits themselves, or even I need it with 8GB or RAM or not, I am just asking IF IT'S POSSIBLE that Gobatte Ramdisk can use a USB stick as RAM also, or leave the USB stick for ReadyBoost?? )

I hope you could understand me now, sorry if there are grammatical mistakes in my English, I haven't practiced it for a while.

No, do not use a RAMDisk program on a USB drive. The performance characteristics of SDRAM and NAND are very different. The system performance would suffer due to the single/dual-channel NAND. In addition, you have to worry about write endurance of the NAND with so many writes.

daaaamn, there is no icon to give you a rep, you're the moderator tongue.gif.... thanks for the valuable input, this is what I needed to know...

but I would like know whether or not there will be any benefits from using it with 8GB of RAM ?? ( I hope there will be not, I don't want to sacrifice any of my RAM redface.gif)

so now regarding the ReadyBoost function on its own, do you think there will be any benefits using it with 8GB of memory ?
