Re: Manual Downloads Available?

Having a PDF copy of such documentation would be useful, and shouldn't require too much work to create.

You could try storing them on a ramdisk... ;)

Re: GpuRamDrive: GPU VRAM as RAMdisk: Game changer!?

...Windows will auto use any spare DRAM as a file aware read cache, regardless of whether you have PrimoCache installed or not...~all your DRAM is used (dynamically) anyway. What is NOT used as extra/spare RAM is any spare GPU VRAM... This is actually a bad thing because: it results in multiple lev...

Re: GpuRamDrive: GPU VRAM as RAMdisk: Game changer!?

I'm in agreement with Cichy45 here. GPU VRAM does offer greater bandwidth than system RAM, but only for GPU-specific work (graphics rendering, GPUGPU, etc). Using GPU RAM more generally (as a ramdisk or disk cache) leads to it being restricted by PCIe bandwidth, which is far less than that of system...

Re: Recovering SSD

Additionally - there's nothing unsafe about Primocache, and using a 3rd party uninstaller with software that has a kernel-level driver may not have worked so well. With Primocache, you can always use it's own uninstaller and rest assured that your system wasn't harmed. In fairness, the issue here w...

Re: how to configure?

Yes, PrimoCache will work with just L1 cache (that's how I use it) and if you are caching programs on SSD or NVMe, L1 on its own is usually the best option. However you need to choose the amount of memory to allocate to L1 with some caution - too little and performance gains will be minimal, too muc...

Re: L2 Cache NvRam missing after hardware upgrade

Sorry for the delay in posting - but given this seems to be a case of an existing Windows install being moved to a new system (something which would pretty much guarantee BSODs on booting with older versions), it seems most likely to be a driver issue. However, try connecting the SSD to another syst...
