Hello,
I just bought a 240gb ssd pci-e card from asus rog, with ceiling read/write speeds of 830/810 MB/s, and 20 gb of ddr3 1600mhz ram. I was planning on making a ramdisk, utilizing 8gb of memory. I was wondering if there was any way to use the 8gb ramdisk to cache the SSD to boost performance?
Thanks

Windows automatically uses unused memory as a disk cache; no configuration necessary

Return the SSD and get the Samsung 840 EVO. It has RAM disk software that will give you 1GB/s write times.
