Bertho, I cannot comment on the existence of such a device since I am unfamiliar with it but do accept the possibility of such a thing. The question with respect to its use in or with Photoshop would be haow large such a devices storage capcity is. Since Photoshop typically requires 3-5 times the largest files size as storage space in virtual memory, such a device to be beneficial for medium sized image files 50MB - 100MB and large image files over 100MB usually would have to be in the range of 150 MB - 2 0r 3 GB. This would expecially be the case if one kept open on one's desktop two or more such image files at the same time or was composing a composite from several image files which one needed to keep open and copy and paste from which would not only involve the existing image files but also the image file of the one containing the composite image. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Bertho Boman Sent: Friday, June 14, 2002 9:19 PM To: email@example.com Subject: Re: W2K RAMlimits I forgot the name but there is at least one company that makes a solid-state "hard drive". It is a board with RAM sockets and a simulated hard disk controller so the PC thinks it is a super fast hard drive.
