Dimmdrive is a RAM-based hard drive software built by gamers, specifically for gamers.
With Dimmdrive, you will be able to turn your PC’s RAM into an incredibly fast hard drive. This incredibly fast hard drive can be hundreds if not thousands of times faster than a conventional hard drive.

By playing your game on a faster hard drive:
  • Take full advantage of up to (and over) 10,000+ MB/s hard drive (HD) access!
  • Game load times are significantly faster! We've seen 60 second game load screens turn into 2-3 seconds!
  • Immerse yourself with nearly instant in-game level loading and transitions!
  • Eliminate FPS drops that are due to your hard drive slowing down!
  • Gain a competitive edge against others!
  • Save on wear and tear of your SSDs as RAM lasts nearly forever!
How it works:
Dimmdrive is a Windows-based software built for 64bit Windows 7/8/10. Dimmdrive utilizes excess system RAM to create a virtualized hard drive. Dimmdrive will auto-detect your game and automatically configure itself to work on this virtualized hard drive seamlessly. You simply run Dimmdrive, click a few buttons, and then play your game on an incredibly fast drive. This enables all games and programs to benefit with regards to disk access and load times. Dimmdrive handles the whole game set-up, file mapping, data synchronization, and data integrity of your game.

Dimmdrive has a lot of features built specifically for gamers!
  • Full Steam Integration - Just run Dimmdrive and it will auto-detect all your Steam games!
  • Large games can work with small RAM sizes - Dimmdrive has a "LESS RAM?" feature which enables you to make the important files of a large game go insanely fast, even if you have a smaller amount of RAM.
  • Real-Time File Sync - Never worry about PC crashes as Dimmdrive automatically synchronizes data from your RAMdrive back to your HD!
  • Support for non-Steam games - Simply drag/drop any non-Steam game into Dimmdrive and it will work!
  • Support for general, non-game applications - Use Dimmdrive with any application including video editing, databases, virtual machines, and more!
  • Convenient game sorting options makes large Steam libraries manageable!
  • Incredible community surrounding the software!
  • Direct contact with the developer for suggestions on feature updates!
  • Continual development with free software updates!

The Program works as promised allerding you have to bear in mind that it only really makes it if you have an extremely large ram, BF4 e.g. can be accelerated via Dimming Drive in terms of Loading times, but in order to speed it up completely 60 gb at In addition to what the speil still needs in Operation at RAm, for these purposes the Use of an SSD is rather recommended, it is possible to accelerate only certain parts of e.g. BF4, to load the individual Xpension Packs into the Ram, but to do so you have to do so in the v Orraus know which map you want to float and which Pack it is stored in. Personally, I find the Price of almost €28 too much in terms of using it. There is clearly a lot of Work going on, and the Developers have put a lot of Effort into it, but the Senariums where the Use of RAMDRIVE brings a Stantable advantage are quite small. A normal Gaming pc usually has more than 16 order 32GB OF RAM and since dan is an SSD much more practical and Cheaper. It is clear that you can also Accelerate every program in Principle, but you should be aware of exactly what I want to do with it, how much ram I have and how big is the Program I want to speed up. The Program works as promised but my Recommendation is more the Purchase and Installation of an SSD

I do NOT fully recommend this Tool. After adding a memory of 64GB in my Computer, I've been toying with the Idea of Acquiring Dimming drive for some Time. After the Purchase, I subjected it directly to a Test; In advance, it should be noted that my Steam library is on USB 3 sticks (and thus probably faster than an HDD but is certainly slower than an SSD). Tested Was Call of Juarez-Gunslinger, the Loading of the first arcade mission: Without Dimming: 10.53s 10.56s 10.49s 10.53s 10.42s with Dimming drive: 10.67s 10.55s 10.62S 10.73s 10.47s Batman Arkham City-Jumping back to the first Checkpoint: Without Dimming: 6.30s 6.19s 6.22s 6.18s 6.34s with Dimming drive: 10.17s 6.57s 6.23s 6.31s 6.20s Civilization 5 Gods & Kings-Full Game start: Without Dimming: 1min 15.44s 1min 23.68s 1min 18.94s 1min 15.96s 1min 24.97s with Dimmdrive: 0min 36.91s 1min 01,47s 0min 322.44s 0Min 30.55s 0min 33.60s I conclude, That The Purchase Is only worthwhile if the loading Times go towards one Minute. The Differences in the first Tests are probably due to Measurement Errors, only the slow Civilization has revealed a visible Benefit of Dimming drive. So You should think twice about buying it (despite Sale!). Addendum: With an Alternative To Creating Hard drives in Memory, I achieved for Civilization 5:1min 20.78s 1min 15.64s 1min 36,83s 1min 21,65s 1min 22,16s, Dimmdrive already performs better here (BUT with already shabbily small Sample). Dimmdrive also has a more pleasant Approach than this Alternative. Nevertheless, I only want to Recommend it to a very limited extent.
