Installing a game into a RAMdisk almost eliminates load times. - Page 4

The saving to the drive argument should be irrelevant anyhow.

If you have the game installed to the ramdisk and no page file, any hard drive activity shouldn't impact the load time.

It does when you are comparing HDD load times to ramdisk load times, meaning at some point you most certainly are loading from the disk.

Do I have to explain everything? Critical thinking must have been bred out of our species at some point I swear.

I have a tripod set up and a very nice HD video camera. Only problem is it is meant for sports use and has a somewhat wide angle lens, but big deal. I would rather use that than take a performance hit unless I am actually trying to get specific details across.

It works far better to do it that way when you have a resolution of 5760x1080. Videos recorded at that aspect ratio suck.

And for that matter, nearly all screen cap software takes a large amount of cpu time, even on the pc I have now I see a drop in framerate just broadcasting, let alone actively saving video. My last setup, a severely overclocked Q6600, would drop from 60 to 25-30 fps in nearly every game I was recording.

Oh, I was thinking of ramdisk only.

I never tried loading from HDD. I'm not going to do a pointless install just for that.
