    I used FancyCache/PrimoCache for a long while, even before I had my first SSD. It helped A LOT in making the computer much snappier.
    However, since my computer now boots and runs on a Samsung 960 EVO I completely gave up on any 3rd party caching solution, as everything just loads instantly.

    I'm guessing this could work on laptops who are notoriously slow and for people who just don't care about what's inside that laptop. They keep their important data on a "stick" anyway so if the laptop breaks, they just take it back to warranty and not care at all if it's wiped out.

    Too bad there are so few AMD laptops right now... -.-

    "So as I understand it, only 2 drives can be Fuzed.", understandably, but there is much to contradict this in the article.
     
  3. With primocache, i have had some impressive results running a two-tier cache (ramdisk and ssd) on a six-disk raid 5 array. Surely this will be capable of similar things, if not more.

    I'm curious about this; not sure if I want it for myself at this point, but I'm certainly interested in a nice full review/benchmark from HH or another reputable site.

    Some people dont see the hidden potential.
    I found out this Primo cache program, it allows multi tier caching and deferred write
    Im building my system around this feature, 10gb of ram as level 1 cache, 300gb of 3D XPoint as level 2 cache, differed write enabled and ill never experience slow writes to any of my HDDs or even 1tb NVMe that I have (which slower then 3D XPoint for sure)
    The only portion outside of caching is boot, which uses 150gb of 3D XPoint, but im thinking of maybe giving it level 1 RAM cache, say 3-5gb to accelerate 3D XPoint .
    In this setup each HDD has it own letter the level 1 and level 2 cache is just in between and its invisible, like Intel SRT but supports more than one drive and can use RAM

    caching can boost your performance, if you use NVMe than use it as caching for HDDs but best is to get 3D XPoint+RAM, even that small one 280gb 900p drive and use it to accelerate all your system drives be it ssds, nvme and hdd

    With the advent of nvme, we face a new paradigm. Storage so fast it approaches memory speeds, if not latency, in raid form.

    Ram is not perfect either. Concurrently ram is ruinous and demand insatiable.

    Afaik, no one here has viewed cache here from that perspective.

    One poster here writes of a ram cache for an xpoint drive which further caches an ssd. The reviewer d8haur? got 28GB/s from an 8 drive array on a threadripper.

    More apps than you suspect can profit from massive memory, and layered cache as above can provide far better simulated ram than has ever been possible before.

    All vega cards allow just that via the hbcc - to use storage as well as system ram as simulated gpu cache.

    this "tech" sounds very similar to MacOS's Fusion Drive.

    Anyway, has anyone actually tried the software? I wanted to find out if it will work with the B350/X370 RAID volume.

    Right now I have a NVMe drive with 3x 7200RPM 500GB HDD in RAID0. it would be interesting to see if I can combine all these with the FuzeDrive software.
