RAM is volatile memory. Solvusoft is recognized by Microsoft as a leading Independent Software Vendor, achieving the highest level of completence and excellence in software development. Latency went up but results stayed very similar. There was slightly more variations in those results, but they were still very much in line with the rramdisk ones if only slightly slower.

Only Crystal disk gave me results similar to the previous ones.

Formats to different file systems don’t persist on reboot. Allow the creation and use of templates, which are image of RAMDisks that don’t save changes made to them.

I’ll probably have my CPU a 3. Path of Exile test: Cluster size smaller than 4k will hurt performance since DRAM has radisk 4k cluster size Cluster size bigger huffalo 4k may increase performance but will also increase wasted space Bottlenecks CPU: Since the Gavotte ramdisk driver has not been sent to Microsoft for signing, the Gavotte ramdisk driver can not pass through the driver signing enforcement. A note will be added mentioning the ramisk when no changes are made to the image.


Adding pagefile to a ramdisk is usually not necessary for Windows x64 pro because the physical memory limits of Windows OSs pro x64 are usually greater or equal to G. Latency went down ever so slightly but results stayed the same across the board.

Empty images take as long to load as newly created ones. Now compare that value with the one you got for your CPU.
