Dimmdrive: Looking Forward

A brief note to our incredible fans:

We want to sincerely thank you for your enthusiasm and loyalty over this recent year as we navigated some personal and professional obstacles. Rest assured, we are now more committed and focused than ever before on providing the best possible gaming product.

Our strategy for doing this remains the same - We look to YOU to drive the experience and future enhancements. That being said, please take to the forums and let us hear what new features you're looking for!

And per request, (without all the details) here's a quick overview of two major upcoming enhancements:
  • Revamped user interface with new functionality and optimized operating processes for a more polished experience
  • Machine learning component (previously discussed) which will dynamically recommend settings for each gamer's system

Once again, Thank You All!

“Very functional and simple software designed with us gamers in mind. Time is money and this software saves me a lot of time setting up a RAMdisk solution. Highly Recommend”

“Bought this on impulse, thinking it was a risk. However, I'm really satisfied. It is very easy to use and really stable. If you have more than 8GB or RAM, I highly recommend it.”

“Great program and works as advertised. Very simple to use (assuming you take a few minutes to read the docs) and great integration with Steam. Highly recommended.”

About This Software

Dimmdrive is a RAM-based hard drive software built by gamers, specifically for gamers.

With Dimmdrive, you will be able to turn your PC’s RAM into an incredibly fast hard drive. This incredibly fast hard drive can be hundreds if not thousands of times faster than a conventional hard drive.

By playing your game on a faster hard drive:

  • Take full advantage of up to (and over) 10,000+ MB/s hard drive (HD) access!
  • Game load times are significantly faster! We've seen 60 second game load screens turn into 2-3 seconds!
  • Immerse yourself with nearly instant in-game level loading and transitions!
  • Eliminate FPS drops that are due to your hard drive slowing down!
  • Gain a competitive edge against others!
  • Save on wear and tear of your SSDs as RAM lasts nearly forever!

How it works:

Dimmdrive is a Windows-based software built for 64bit Windows 7/8/10. Dimmdrive utilizes excess system RAM to create a virtualized hard drive. Dimmdrive will auto-detect your game and automatically configure itself to work on this virtualized hard drive seamlessly. You simply run Dimmdrive, click a few buttons, and then play your game on an incredibly fast drive. This enables all games and programs to benefit with regards to disk access and load times. Dimmdrive handles the whole game set-up, file mapping, data synchronization, and data integrity of your game.

Dimmdrive has a lot of features built specifically for gamers!

  • Full Steam Integration - Just run Dimmdrive and it will auto-detect all your Steam games!
  • Large games can work with small RAM sizes - Dimmdrive has a "LESS RAM?" feature which enables you to make the important files of a large game go insanely fast, even if you have a smaller amount of RAM.
  • Real-Time File Sync - Never worry about PC crashes as Dimmdrive automatically synchronizes data from your RAMdrive back to your HD!
  • Support for non-Steam games - Simply drag/drop any non-Steam game into Dimmdrive and it will work!
  • Support for general, non-game applications - Use Dimmdrive with any application including video editing, databases, virtual machines, and more!
  • Convenient game sorting options makes large Steam libraries manageable!
  • Incredible community surrounding the software!
  • Direct contact with the developer for suggestions on feature updates!
  • Continual development with free software updates!
