Curiosity brings me here.
I would like to know if this would benefit my gaming machine.
I have a Seagate 1 TB 32MB cache 7200 RPM HDD with everything on it.
I recently aquired a 120 GB Corsair SSD.
I do not want to reinstall everything and all that goes with that.
I would like to use the SSD as a cache similar to the SSD cache drives available.
Seems to me most of them are basically software driven so that is what brought me here.
Most of the other alternatives to Dataplex and such seem to be mostly server based.
Thanks for your time.
largely yes. But no if your windows installation uses uefi
and your games are on that volume.
A UEFI enabled version of Velossd is announced to be available
late in february 2013. Then its a complete “yes”.
I am using win7 ultimate x64
No idea about UEFI
I am not very tech savy but I am a lil smarter than the average bear.
My system is a bit older but it isnt a dinosaur yet. hehe
AMD Phenom II X4 940
4X 2GB OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400
MSI HAWX Twin Frozer 460GTX
1TB Seagate HDD 32MB cache
NZXT M-59 case
Corsair H60 liquid cpu cooler
OK so upon some investigation, It seems the UEFI is relatively new and in the MBs BIOS.
My MB doesn’t seem to have that as far as I could tell in the specs for it so I am guessing my windows installation is not UEFI
Guess I will give the trial a try
So far, so good.
thank you for the benchmarks.
I wanted to add that the current release ( 2.1 ) performs better,
especially in the QD32 section.
If you post a benchmark then please include the following information
for Hard Drive and SSD:
HardDrive Model / Manufacturer / build year.
PC build, CPU, Ram, OS
To make a good example we will soon post a (little) hammer benchmark here.
The time has come with Version 188.8.131.52. We use almost the same Bench software here.
Before: Samsung HD501 LJ 7.2K RPM HDD
After: 32GB cache on a RevoDrive 3 MaxIops
Q4/Q16 performance, same hardware:
