How does MaxVeloSSD's RAM caching help?

#1

I understand that the RAM caching in MaxVeloSSD is supposed to help prolong the life of our SSDs. My basic understanding is that the life of an SSD’s NAND memory is diminished by each write or erase, but not by reads.

Can someone help me understand how the RAM caching mitigates SSD writes?

I’d like to test Intel’s SRT cache with write-back enabled (“maximum” setting) verses MaxVeloSSD configured with different amounts of RAM cache. I want to measure how much wear savings there is by using MaxVeloSSD.

What’s a good way to test this?

Hello, this would be a great question for the developers of Elitebytes , but I will give it a go, please remember I am only giving you my personal opinion as I am surely not an expert. I believe MaxVelo RAM directs your write to your RAM instead of your HDD or SSD therefore saving the SSD or platter drive unnecessary write cycles. But remember, that you can only use the amount of RAM you designate to the Elitebytes program, so you will have to clear your cache on a continual basis. jmho.
