How R-RAM Can Help Make Your PC Run Faster
R-RAM has several main features which helps optimize memory for your applications.
(1) Release RAM
You can free up a specific amount of RAM at any time, allowing your system to have memory available, and thus making your program work faster by utilising the freed memory that is ready and waiting.
(2) Auto Detection
With the automatic feature, R-RAM monitors the amount of available RAM . Once this RAM drops below a certain level specified by the user, it then performs an automatic freeup of RAM to a specified amount. With this option you can have R-RAM running in the background. – Some users claim that this feature has reduced the number of Windows crashes they normally experienced prior to using Release RAM.
(3) Time Interval Releases
You can set R-RAM to do regular free-ups at an interval between 5 minutes and 24 hours. This can be useful for servers when you can pre-determine peek and non-peek periods of the server’s use.
At Startup, Windows has a number of programs and files that it might open. After it has completed the Startup process, a significant amount of RAM could be in use – and therefore wasted. The ‘R-RAM’ Startup feature allows you to free up and release some unused RAM – after a user-specified amount of time.
(5) Configure Virtual Cache Settings * New *
Using the Cache Settings feature you can configure your computer to use its RAM to suit the way you use your computer. There are several predefined options including; Standard System, Power User, Multimedia, 3D Games, 3d Writer, Low Memory Systems.
(6) Optimize your Virtual memory * New *
Release RAM can optimize your virtual memory (swapfile) settings, this alone can make a noticeable difference as it can reduce virtual memory re-sizing, disk swapping, disk defragmentation, and constant hard disk access – these events all reduce your system’s general performance.
Other Release RAM features are listed on the R-RAM Features page.
