What format can you suggest for RAM Disk for maximum performance in Windows 10 64-bit? RAW or NTFS?

RAW essentially means no file system. You will not be able to write anything to it until it's formatted (unless you have special software that works with unformatted volumes directly).

I'd say go for NTFS, or FAT32 if your files are under 4 GB.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
