What Ramdisk Software du you use on Windows?

Just considering to use the Madmax Ram Plotter.
Is it working fine on Windows, too?

Is it working on Windows? / Yes. Currently testing…
On an Intel Core i7-8700K 4.3 GHz, NMVe Evo Plus 1TB, “phase 1” finished in 55 minutes. (Off the total 12 threads, I set to 11 threads, but it ignored my settings and took everything at 100%, so definitely no parallel here.)

You can still run 2 in parallel and see if it ends up being faster in terms of plots per hour. Your OS will take care of allocating the CPU ressources.

That might work, thanks…
I like the idea :slight_smile:

Just tried 2 in parallel, nah, my system rebooted (losing the 1st unfinished).

I have been using the Imdisk app

New to Madmax. What is the Minimum RAM Drive size advisable with Madmax?

What works:
NVMe as temp 1
RAM drive as temp 2 (110 GB) (75% of phase 1 is made in temp 2)

Thanks ChiaMiner!
So will a 128GB RAM Machine works with 110GB allocated as ramdrive?
Or, do I need a 256GB RAM Machine?

128 GB will do the job.

Did the job perfectly fine.
Simple and easy to use.
Allows unlimited amount of ram to be allocated for the RAM Disk.
I used ~118 and ended up with a 112 GB drive.
