GpuRamDrive it's a program to create a RAM disk from your Video Card RAM.
This application simply allocates a memory buffer inside GPU RAM and use it as virtual ram disk. The project is made possible by ImDisk and its proxy feature.

Using GPU RAM isn't as fast as host main memory, however it is still faster than a regular HDD. The result below is taken on my system with GTX 850M and i7-4710MQ. As IO operation is happening between the CPU and GPU, the GPU can become active from idle state and might causes system to draw more power. This merely just a PoC, user who search for this kind of solution is advised to upgrade the RAM or buy a faster storage.

So You Need GpuRamDrive + ImDisk

Install ImDisk Virtual drive (http://www.ltr-data.se/opencode.html)
Download GpuRamDrive from https://github.com/prsyahmi/GpuRamDrive/releases
Run GpuRamDrive_x86.exe or GpuRamDrive_x64.exe according to your platform

Interesting right?
