The fastest ‘storage device’ you can buy — enthusiast uses AMD Ryzen’s 3D V-Cache to produce tiny, uber-fast pseudo SSD that could pave way to exciting prospects

Somebody has managed to turn AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor into a storage device with read-write speeds that can rival some of the best SSDs out there.

By running a RAM disk on the 3D V-Cache processor, our sister site Tom’s Hardware spotted the test results of roughly 178GB/s for reads and 163GB/s for writes when testing the system on CrystalDiskMark. It was conducted by the GPUs Are Magic account on X earlier in the year.
