First of all, AppNee wants everyone to know three facts about RAM:

  1. The capacity of single memory bank is getting bigger and bigger (8 GB of RAM is already ubiquitous)
  2. The read/write speed of almost any RAM can reach more than 4 GB/s, but even the top-level, fastest SSD can only stay in the unit calculated in MB (may be 500 MB/s or less)
  3. A large proportion of the memory capacity is in the idle state (wasted in vain)

Therefore, we can use some Ramdisk (AKA: RAM drive) software to drain the idle memory capacity, in order to improve the system performance crazily – play to their extreme.

Primo Ramdisk (AKA: VSuite Ramdisk II) is the successor of VSuite Ramdisk with more features, better performance, and friendlier UI. It is currently acknowledged as the most powerful (very reliable), five-star Ramdisk tool. As the outstanding and leading one among all Ramdisk software, Primo Ramdisk is much better than all the other similar tools. By contrast, for example, Buffalo Ramdisk generates huge size of log files in C volume, QSOFT Ramdisk comes with too complicated settings, even the most popular SuperSpeed’s RamDisk Plus (as follows).

Feature Primo Ramdisk SuperSpeed RamDisk Plus
Loading Method Truely driver-level, can be loaded before the startup of system (also can be set to the level of software simulation) Drived by software simulation, can not load before system startup
Pagefile Can hold the page file of virtual memory and use safely Even saves a page file, there will be no effect, or just a pseudomorphism at most. Windows will generate its page files as usual
Stability There will be no conflicts that cause the failure of entering system Easy to conflict with the system or other software
Overall startup time Fast Slow
Work with SSD and eBoostr Can make the running speed of your computer close to the situation that your whole system is set up and run in the memory only Not powerful enough. It’s the equivalent of using a hybrid mode of hard disks (SSD + HDD) at most. Because the page file can’t saved into RAM, its speed does not keep pace with the former, and damages SSD too much

By virtue of unique algorithm, Primo Ramdisk can turn part of physical memory into a physical/virtual hard disk partition that is even N times faster than any SSD. It’s enough to overcome the bottleneck problem of hard drive speed that can never be solved, so as to significantly increase computer performance (Because the running speed of system depends largely on the hard disk read/write speed. That is why even if your RAM is larger, it’s still impossible to further improve the OS performance). In addition, Primo Ramdisk’s unique way of memory management allows to write the data on virtual disk to hard disk at the time of Windows shutdown, and automatically load it back to Ramdisk when it boots up.

From another viewpoint, when all data to be read frequently (such as the temp, cache, download folder of system or software) is deposited into the Ramdisk, it can effectively extend the service life of both HDD and SSD. BTW, don’t make the mistake of thinking that a computer with high configuration (for instance, SSD + 8 GB RAM) does not need a Ramdisk at all. Because in this case, the enhancement on performance mainly embodies in the time of running some large software. Its performance boost is not comparable for SSD (you can test the speed of downloading the same file to Ramdisk, SSD and HDD. After that, I guess you may give up the purchase plan of SSD).

Other Features

// System Requirements //

  • All versions of Windows Server 2003(R2)/2008(R2)/2012(R2), including x86 and x64 editions

// Edition Statement //

AppNee provides the Primo Ramdisk Standard/Professional/Server/Ultimate Edition multilingual full installers, reg key files, and unlocked files for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit.

// Installation Notes //

for Server/Professional/Ultimate Edition v5.7.0+:

  1. Download and install Primo Ramdisk
  2. Copy the unlocked file to installation folder and overwrite
  3. Done

for Server Edition v5.6.0:

  1. Double click to import the Reg Key file
  2. Install Primo.Ramdisk.Srv.Mui.Setup.5.6.0.exe
  3. That’s all

// Prompts //

Block the program with your firewall (i.e.: stop it connecting to Internet). Otherwise, the following error may occur:

  • The unlocked file only works for one month (like the trail period). After that, the kernel driver won’t load and all the program functionality stops working!

*** For now, we have no way to crack for the kernel driver.
