[AMD] Test drive AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk - Page 4

post #31 of 34
I am going to conclude my part in this thread with saying that the real limitations of these programs are caused by the fact that software programmers on the whole seem to ignore their existence. Maybe that will change as onboard memory is going to grow substantially soon and things like SSDalloc are in the works. Till then, unlimited freeware is going to trump some limited rebranding any day.

I guess your point is valid if your using hard drives. But if your using an SSD, I don't think any programs rely on the pagefile that much for you to realise a performance hit and therefore go through hassle of making a RAM disk. I could be wrong.

Right but many people still do it when they have SSDs because they want to prevent any extra unnecessary writes to their SSD, which reduces the lifespan. It's up to you to decide if it's worth the hassle though.

Yeah true, but for instance if your page file was 512mb the writes would be so minuscule i doubt it would even take off a month of the lifespan. As you said it's up to the user...and their OCDness biggrin.gif
