I’ll wait for some feedback before starting to test all the others RAMDisks. This is useful information to have when trying to determine which product to buy to optimize your memory bandwidth. So if you have any ideas about that or if you want me to test other things such as the boot speed when loading an image let me know.

When no changes are made to an image, unload times are the same as when the whole disk has been written to. When no changes are made to an image, unload times are the same as volatile disks. Note that passwords are case-sensitive.

Such drives contain a battery, so they can maintain the contents of the RAM if the computer loses power. In order to be able to post messages on the Overclock. In most cases memory bandwidth will be limited by the speed of the CPU.

Announces that the data has been successfully written to disk when it only has been dumped to memory a power failure before windows has finished writing the data would result in corrupt data. 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. So it seems unlikely that memory bandwidth will ever but an issue. The Best Tech Newsletter Anywhere Joinsubscribers and get a daily digest of news, geek trivia, and our feature articles.

Latency went down ever so slightly but results stayed the same across the board. Kernel-allocated memory always backed by RAM, has large-page support.

Empty images take as long to load as newly created ones. I still have the determine what settings I should use RAMDisk size, file system, etc for the tests to be fair. The Problem is that Buffalo RAMDisk seems to operate at the same level as a bootkit it loads itself before windows and fails to read the symbolic links, so only the shutdown values will be correct.

Results are nearly identical. Password Please enter a password for your user account. That is because even with identical clocks this value will vary based on the processor architecture and memory controller, but as a general rule of thumb higher frequency result in more memory bandwidth.

Windows uses unused memory to cache files anyway, and it does it all automatically and in the background. However, the maximium size for each pagefile is limited to M. Most of the information about how different Bbuffalo handle vuffalo allocation was made available by the tools at sysinternals.

Buffalo RAMDISK Utility

The system remains idle until the Event Viewer opens. RAM disks are easy bufalo sell — all you have to do is hold up performance benchmarks showing how much faster it is ramdism read data from RAM than it is from even a fast SSD. Register Now In order to be able to post messages on the Overclock. I might try again later with another set but for now I’ll have to try to extrapolate the result of the next test to try to get an nuffalo of the effect of higher memory frequency.

But given the extreme effort one would have to make to cripple his machine in order to reach a memory bottleneck, I think it’s safe to say that nobody needs to worry about it.

Buffalo RAMDISK Utility – Should I Remove It?

All files and folders in the ramdisk are automatically saved to a image backup file on the hard drive when turning off the PC, and rmdisk back to RAM when powering on the PC ramdisl. As a result I was not able to test for a memory bottleneck. Highly specialized software, offer many encryption and archival options. Tablets Laptops and Netbooks Phones. There is no easy way to tell how much bandwidth the processor can handle, the only way to know for sure is to test it with a benchmark.
