    I was drooling at Samsungs rapid mode, when I discovered a software that does basically the same thing to any system.

    Has anyone tried this? My current system only has 4gb or ram or else I would try this myself.

    It is not exactly a ram disk. I already know about ram disks and I don't find them usefull. It is basically disk caching on a ram disk but completely similar to Samsung's rapid mode.

    Only reason I started this thread is TPU only has one mention of it at all if the search function was correct. I have read other threads at other forums. I ask the TPU community because it is the TPU community.

    little salty? As far as I know OCZ had something like this and other manufacturers might for their "cache disks" which were iirc 32GB ssds though I never personally played with the software.

    Those were physically ssd's used as caches. Ram is even faster.

    Really I am wondering if anyone has any experience with this software. If they found it useful for whatever. I know what beneifits ram drives/caches have. I have read the reviews and benchmarks.
