Solid-State Drive (SSD) prices are continuing to drop and capacities are increasing, so more and more gamers are looking to install games on an SSD over a traditional spinning hard drive.

Anyone else old enough to remember RAM drives. Take part of your system memory and load a game onto it and run from there rather than a hard drive. Do they still have programs to split your system memory to do that? Is it possible now a days? With the size of the games you would need a lot of memory but would be sweet to see if performance was any better of stuck close to the pcie card times.

Oh yeah... AMD for example has released a ton of 'speed of your system' software solutions...

Years ago it was RAMDisk - https://www.amd.com/en-us/products/memory/ramdisk

Most recently it has been Enmotus FuzeDrive - http://www.enmotus.com/amd
