Persistent VS Volatile RAM drive speed   13 January 2011, 19:58

I have a question regarding performance of the SoftPerfect RAM drive.

Is a persistent RAM drive (using an image file) in any way less performant than a volatile RAM drive?

No, it is not. It just takes some time to load an image file into RAM on startup and to unload the RAM's contents back to the image file on shutdown. Both image-based and volatile RAM disks perform equally well in terms of speed.
