I found it interesting they were using this special name for what has been around for a long time: a RAM disk.
But... it does make it very convenient because it will configure to move your pagefile there, temp folder, IE temp files, and such. So, it's really convenient. I wish it would work with Chrome, too. But you can configure Chrome to use it, you have to do registry and shortcut editing to make it work because you have to modify Chrome's command line.
When the computer is shut off everything on the ramdisk is gone, so it's only useful for storage of temporary files.
I'm using it. I also configured Chrome to use it. I haven't done any performance tests, though I do think Chrome responds faster in some situations. I disabled the pagefile though, since I have 16 GB RAM, so that part doesn't matter for me.
