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.

[v7.x] Gilisoft RAMDisk – Boost performance and speed up access to data

Because physical memory performs operations much, much faster than hard disk, RAM disk can greatly improve application performance. Given that large capacity memory is now widely available and mostly idle, so we can use software like GiliSoft RAMDisk to create free memory as virtual hard drives for use, thus increasing the running speed of software or system many times.

ImDisk – Virtual disk driver and RAM disk creator

By modifying the environment variables of system or software to save a variety of commonly used temporary folders (Temp, IE Cache, Download folder, for example) to the virtual hard disk (RAM drive), we can effectively improve the file reading/writing speed and software running speed. And in fact, it can also reduce the reading/writing times of physical disk so as to prolong its service life to some extent.
