A lightning fast Read-Write speed is a dream for every gamer or a developer. After sometime when crap and redundant data piles up your primary memory which eventually leads to latency in reading and writing the required data.

A fix to this glitch is using SSDs, which effectively enhances the boot time of any program. The major issue in using a SSD is its cost, they are very expensive that makes you think twice before ordering one.

A slick trick which can actually serve your purpose of getting higher Read-Write speed and that too free of cost, the idea is to convert your RAM into a Disk Drive. You can actually transform your available RAM into a virtual RAM where you can actually store frequently used files which will be rendered at much faster speed.

The reason of this meteoric speed is due to elimination of requirement of storing files onto your RAM from the Hard Drive.

This virtual RAM will be created by using the unused or idle RAM on your system. Much of your RAM is actually useless even if you have hefty applications running on your system. If you are fascinated by the idea to convert your RAM into virtual RAM Drive, just refer the process below:
