    RAMDISK for Revit Performance?

    Hello,

    Is anyone leveraging RAMDISK for Revit Performance gain?

    Thanks,

    I'm running a RAM Cache. Hard to tell if there's an actual performance difference. The Revit benchmark doesn't show anything but then it wouldn't since it's not timing re-reads and re-writes.

    If you're going to put Revit on the RAM Disk then yeah, I'd say you'll see performance benefits once it loads (though I'm told it's pretty unstable).

      RAM cache?... and probably no performance benefit. Revit is mostly CPU-bound as long as you have enough RAM and an adequate GPU. Drive speed (assuming you have an SSD) and memory throughput are generally not bottlenecks.

      RAM disks as a concept are almost completely pointless for general computer usage.

        If I'm using the words right, RAM cache is like the L1 cache on your hard drive and gets flushed when you restart, or not if the software allows.

        RAM disk is more like a wicked fast SSD and can store whole programs. Again, as I understand. Not a yuge hardware nerd.

          Also, as you said, I've seen no noticeable performance bump whether in Revit or any other program... except when calculating a Passmark score, then it jumped from below 50th percentile to 99th percentile on an old HDD.
