Hi Olof and Everyone
Great app!

 

SUGGESTION:
RAM is always at a premium and in use (Superfetch etc)
GPU RAM is not.
Most all GPU memory is free and idle except when playing games etc.

 

GpuRamDrive
allows you to make a RAM Disk in GPU memory using ImDisk's Proxy feature:

 

Intro and
For Nvidia:
https://github.com/p...hmi/GpuRamDrive

 

For AMD:
https://github.com/b...mDrive/releases
(the original/1st version creates a RAM Disk in system RAM, not GPU VRAM on AMD Graphics Cards)

 

Wish List: 
(I'm new to ImDisk and still learning, so much of the below may already be do-able with the Toolkit..?)

 

1:
It would be great if GpuRamDrive was fully integrated into ImDisk so that the VRAM disk could be easily auto created and loaded with files at every boot.

 

2:
It would be even nicer if said disk was auto mounted as a VHD at boot, so that various disk caching apps (StoreMI, Primocache, Readyboost, HDDTurbo etc) could/would auto use it.

 

3:
Dynamic resizing would be great!?

 

4:
The Ram Disk created by GpuRamDrive is dissapointingly slow.
Apparently the software is Proof of Concept with much room for improvement and ImDisk's Proxy feature isn't exactly blisteringly fast either!? :)
It wou be really great if the whole lot were optimised for better speed.
Perhaps multi cored memory access like SoftPerfect's RAM Disk uses??

 

This would be a great and unique feature for ImDisk..!?
