Interesting, but I wouldn't call it "Holly Grail"... After all it's just a cache
No demo version ?
Edited : found one on http://www.romexsoftware.com/en-us/primo-cache/download.html
Sounds like ReadyBoost..
no benefits if you already have an SSD?
i'm wondering whats gonna happen in 5 years or so when even laptops should be able to have 32-64 GB RAM. then 128 and 256 arent too far away either.
@Snoop3 It is deisgned for systems using SSDs.
Wow what a rip-off.
- Other than a big fat RAM drive, you're not getting any faster than an SSD
- Intel RST caching is free and already does what these guys are selling. I use to use it but now I just put Win & system stuff on the SSD and hitch-sensitive games in a 100GB partition at the beginning of my platter drive and keep all platter partitions MyDefrag'd (free) with custom scripting
- Someone already mentioned ReadyBoost
Install your sim on your SSD; if you have hitching or other issues, they aren't due to your platter drive.
For $30 you can about buy a 240GB SSD rather than the 120GB one.
"to provide data caching for local physical disks"
but the local physical disks theyre talking abt are HDD, right? what if you just have 1 SSD on a laptop?
There do have some benchmarks on their site, and they claim it can help extend SSD life. Not that I have any plans to install it.
That seems to be the case.
seems like the answer is more RAM - its only like $5/GB, maybe they cant fit 32 GB on most laptop though.
$160 OOP then a RAM drive and maybe you dont even need SSD?
If your sim isn't running smoothly with an SSD, there's a problem somewhere that needs to be addressed, not "cached".
I don't even know why caching would help: textures should be loaded in plenty enough time--unless you're flying the Bell X-1 above the streets of Manhattan...?
Never heard of that, thanks!
Well, nothing better than a field trial. I'd like to test it but I fear it is incompatible with AX64 Time Machine...
Can't really imagine it making a significant difference to how the machine performs, other than making certain benchmarks looks good. As far as I'm concerned, SSDs are the best investment to make for performance.
I can barely tell a difference between SSDs from older generations compared to now - unless it's something quite old like a Samsung PM800, and even then it's only a slight delay in real world usage.
Edit: Googling suggests that it needs to be disabled when doing updates or installing software.
LOL, I have to admit I'm quite skeptical of this type of software.
