There are quite a few of us on the Computer Audiophile forum who have good results placing a copy of an audio player program in a Ramdisk set up with SoftPerfect software and running it from there. The sound quality is significantly better than when the .exe is executed from the SSD, but the question is why?

We believe when the .exe is run from the SSD it is loaded in to Windows memory. When the .exe is run from a SoftPerfect Ramdisk what happens?

Good question. Technically there should not be any difference between a program launched from an SSD and a program launched from a RAM Disk, except maybe for a faster start in the latter case.

I would assume it's the placebo effect, but if for any reason it does work better, that's great wink
