Installing Cubase on a Ram Disk

Hello ! :smiley:
I have a lot of ram installed on my new computer, and i used 6go of them to mount a virtual drive (called ram disk).
I would like to know if installing cubase on a ram disk will achieve better performance than on a classic ssd, or if it’s totally useless.
I don’t know if there are any ram cache processus that do already the job alone.
Cheers,
Louis

Config :
Windows 7 + cubase 7.5
3930k @ 4.6ghz
32go 2400mhz CL10
2 X 840 pro 512go (raid 0)

Do you intend to leave the computer running permanently, or will you install Cubase fresh every time you fire it up?

ram disks are pointless period

I save the ram disk content automatically : periodicly and before shutting down.

Have to agree with Scott here, I tried it a couple of years ago and it made little difference to Cubase performance. The only thing I noticed was a lack of disk activity in the meter when starting/stopping a track.
