AMD Radeon RAMDisk drastically reduce the load time of games and applications
A few days ago we learned that amd had made an agreement with Dataram, whose fruit would be the use AMD Radeon RAMDisk , utility that promises substantial increases in the loading time of the games. From Planet 3DNow! We get some details of this new utility from AMD.
While AMD still not Dataram have revealed the exact details on the operation of the utility, with the first preview of AMD APU Series A-5000 , mentions a few details Radeon RAMDisk utility, among which are its RAM disk support up to 64GB.
Although it was initially believed that AMD Radeon RAMDisk only work with the memory modules AMD Memory seems to work with any memory module that meets the specifications AMP (AMD Memory Profiles), specification rival XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile) of Intel.
Given the nature of this utility, your performance will be directly related to the frequency and latency of RAM, why AMD is understood to want to ensure that the best results are compatible with your memories using AMP specification.
This utility will work with apu AMD trinity A-5000 Series, and will probably work well with any AMD microprocessor Memory equipped with AMD reports or any other compatible module with AMP. For now know if it will work with AMD Memory memory installed on Intel platforms.
We hope that in the coming days to make its appearance more interesting details on this utility, we assume for the moment that could use profiles saved games AMD Catalyst graphics drivers for “pre-load” the game files on the RAM disk to accelerate performance and load times, but it is not yet confirmed.
