Background to this - I am running my computer with 20GB of RAM running at 2133MHz, have a RAM disk utility software that can partition my RAM to run full time as what the computer thinks is another local disk (super handy for transferring files stupidly fast by the way).
So I'm wondering is if anyone on here has done this, or used anything else on PS (Premiere has RAM allocation but no scratch disks), to where you use one or more scratch disks other than your C:/ drive to make PS run faster. It's kind of an odd thing to try so if no one has, then oh well. But so far it seems to run most operations faster than just allowing it as much RAM as possible.
Also wondering because if anyone has tried this I'm curious to see if it would be more advantageous to use two smaller scratch disks on RAM (say 2x4GB ones) versus one larger disk (1x8GB). But that ultimately comes down to the architecture of PS coding, as it might be coded to try to only use two when absolutely necessary.
But if no one has done this, RAM disks are still legit for photography and just transferring media off of cards or holding it there and dumping to other external HDD's in a hurry. (I know you can only transfer files as fast as your slowest drive/cable, but it is often much faster for some reason actually)
