RAM Plotting instead of M2

What is keeping people from turning RAM memory into HD and using it as Temps instead of M2 or fast SSD? since RAM lasts forever and in an Oracle 32 cores server, for example, would be fast and dependable?

Bash me

Some ppl did that, but performance wasnt much better than with SSD.
I think, if u have more than 256GB RAM, ull probably want to plot a lot of files simultanously and care less about having to buy a new SSD every other month.
Also, Diskspeed has a much smaller impact on plotting than most of us expected.

Has been discussed before: Plotting to RAM Disk instead of SSD?
