AMD launched a new Radeon branded memory product today called the Radeon RAMDisk. Despite the rather unoriginal name, it is a piece of software that will allow you to use a portion of your system RAM as a hard drive-like storage device where you can install programs. AMD has partnered with Dataram to develop the software.
The AMD Radeon RAMDisk will create drives up to 64GB in size, and is designed to be used with AMD's own Radeon-branded DDR3 modules (though other manufacturer's RAM will work as well). The RAM disk offers up almost-instantaeous access times and impressive read and write speeds for your applications and virtual machines.

What is this product different from other Ramdisk products, except for the limitation to be available on Radeon DDR3 modules only?
I use the Superspeed Ramdisk Plus product to do the same, and it allows me to fully use the upper 3GB of my 6GB laptop with 32 bits Windows 7 as a high speed ramdisk where I store my Windows swap file.
