DOS, Win 3.1/3.11, Win 95/98/ME Ramdrives List and Performance Comparison

13 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a list of DOS Ramdrives and Windows 3.1/3.11/95/98/ME Ramdrives for a Performance Comparison test.

I will be testing them for compatibility, stability, and speed on the P4, Z77, and Z170.

Anyone is welcome to add their recommended programs to this topic.  You can explain why you like or dislike it and any special parameters or features you use.  Free or Commercial Ramdrives are acceptable.  Any benchmark programs you would like to see used go ahead and list.

 

Currently proposed:

SHSUFDRV:

Franck Uberto's one:

SRDISK:

Cenatek (Shareware), pretty hard to find nowadays:

Ow, come on, you cannot discuss with Google, nor nitpick with it on names given to programs, half of the fun would go away. ;)

Just as an example, without the information that fu_rd comes out from Franck Uberto's Ram Disk, one may assume that it comes from "furd" which would open a hell of a renaming contest:

LOL.  Does sound similar to Tu_rd if that's what you meant needing renaming. :whistle:

Which is still Franck Uberto's one, originally distributed as fu_rd19i.zip:

Thanks.  I didn't know that.  Downloaded for posterity  :D

You weren't kidding.  They look like the exact same files.  I grabbed the others while I was at it.  I might need something to do after I finish transplanting XP files.

FWIW, I use XMSDSK on my clunkers.

No QEMM or Helix Hurricane?

How about XMSDSK?

Qemm is for DOS Memory manager.

Where is this Helix Hurricane?

I was looking for a link to whatever Ramdisk program he was talking about.

But I see this company was responsible for Memmaker for DOS which I used but it certainly wasn't as good as QEMM for MM.
