My objective was to see if it would compile my game emulator more quickly having it all stored in ram. I also wanted to test my emulator save times.
My findings with my limited testing was my compile times and save times were identical to my mechanical hard drives (+/- a couple tenths of a second). *shrugs* Perhaps the rest of my system could not fully utilize the speed or my application just didn't benefit, it simply made little difference. Then again I could have done it all wrong .
I would be interested to have other chime in with their experiences.
