AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk harnesses the untapped potential of your system's memory to deliver lightning fast reading and writing speeds and dramatically accelerates the loading and processing time for PC gaming enthusiasts who will experience:
AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk is a kernel-level driver that presents a standard disk drive to the Operating System. It creates a drive letter similar to the C:/drive and can be assigned a name (e.g. RAMDisk) for reference. A RAMDisk stores and retrieves data from the system RAM on your motherboard instead of an actual, physical disk. A user interface is provided that allows the user to set various options, as well as create or delete the RAMDisk.
AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk dramatically accelerates the loading and process times of games, software suites and web browsers. It provides faster reading and writing speeds vs. your hard disk drive or an SSD. Experience read performance up to 25,600MBps with DDR3-1600MHz memory.
At boot, AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk can be programmed to automatically and silently load files into the RAMDisk. At shutdown or hibernation, data from the RAM drive is saved back to a traditional hard drive for long term storage. To reduce the volatile nature of memory, the data stored can be set to auto-save at timed intervals that can be set by the users.
AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk is designed to permanently delete any information stored in the RAMDisk that is not backed up or auto-saved, making the information completely unrecoverable. Additionally, because it has no moving parts, it is resistant to wear and tear unlike traditional HDDs and SSDs. It allows users unlimited read and write capacity without the fear of disk failure.
If you feel the need for more computer speed, even if you're already rocking a fast SSD, you can still improve your computer's performance by turning your memory into an AMD Radeon™ RAMDisk!
Radeon Ram Disk
Pros: Named after GREAT video cards.
Cons: was suppost to be 64 gigs but only gives you 4.
Other Thoughts: I never even received an email letting me know the downloaded item was available to download. I should has been instant. I had to look it up in my orders it gives yopu only the last 4 characters of the serial key.

Works as stated
Pros: Downloaded and installed within 5 min of receipt of code key by email. Setup was little confusing at first. After I created my first RAM disk, it would not save until I came out of advanced mode and realized it was set to create new ramdisk instead of load saved ramdisk on program startup. It is definitely much faster but haven't yet benchmarked it yet. Tried it with gaming and video editing. Created 8GB ramdisk (total 12BG system). Full RAM recovery when ramdisk stopped. Created a RAMdisk folder on second drive to store ramdisk images. When loaded, it functions like any other drive. Games are automatically saved. Got it cheaper with promo. Well worth the buy.
Cons: Seems the program persistently defaults to start the ramsdisk when the program starts (advanced mode). I unchecked it, checked to "save when changes made" then exited advance mode and made sure the program was set to load a saved ramdisk when the program starts. That did the trick.
Other Thoughts: Was creating RAM disks in the days of DOS but with so little memory, it was not practical back then. It has its place today with RAM being so cheap and plentiful. Going to upgrade to 24GB RAM just to take advantage of the program

Old trick with a good UI
Pros: Ramdisks are not a "new" thing. I haven't used them since the Win 3.11/DOS thru Win98 days when HDDs were really slow. The app allows for easy setup and there is quite a bit of flexibility. I've configured a machine with 32GB as follows:
Cons: Not a con per-se; just be aware that this is fast scratch disk access.
Other Thoughts: Try the free version out. It's limited to 4GB (6GB with AMD memory). Watch the videos for implementation ideas.

Pros: works just like the product is supposed to. been useing the free version for about three days now, and works great.
Cons: non with the product so far.
Other Thoughts: newegg never gave me the last 4 digits of the Product Key, they never sent me an email confirming the purchase or giving me my Product Key to activate the full version. customer support isn't even open till tomorrow because I had to wait the 3 hours for the email that never came! I would not recommend buying anything from newegg that has to do with download!!!
