For the first run I'll be using Anvil's venerable Storage Utilities v1.0.51 RC6. Ignore the alignment warning on the screenshot as it doesn't apply on RAM disks. We can easily see here that RAM disks are much faster than SSD's, the benchmark numbers are just astonishing:
The crazy numbers continue with AS SSD Benchmark v1.7.4739.38088. Like Anvil this is also is a great benchmarking program, especially created for SSD's. Once again the numbers here are the stuff of dreams:
The ATTO v2.47 benchmark is next. This is an older program created primarily for hard disk benchmarking, but many people still use it for SSD and RAM disk benching:
Last but not least is a run by CrystalDiskMark v3.0.2F. Once again the numbers are simply out of this world, even when compared to some of the fastest SSD's:
It is really astonishing to be able to get numbers like these simply by utilizing RAM disk software on modern RAM. Of course the newer and more powerful the system, the better the numbers will be. Older or less powerful systems will produce lesser numbers, but their RAMdisk's will still fly when compared to their normal disks. Overall there can be no speed comparison between a RAMdisk and a hard disk - or even an SSD. The moral of the benchmarking story: Where raw, unadulterated speed is concerned, RAM disks simply rule.
RamDisk Plus is a great program that allows users to fully utilize even hidden/unavailable system memory, and use it as an ultra-fast virtual drive. This is a feature-rich program that is stable and very easy to use.
So, go ahead and fill your motherboard with as much RAM as it can hold, then make good use of it with a top-rated RAM disk program like RamDisk Plus 11. With memory prices at their current level, it has never been a better time to do so. One thing is pretty certain - once you integrate a RAM disk into your everyday computer usage, you'll never look back.
