So in my last article, I posted about increasing the speed of StarNet++ as long as you have a CUDA-enabled NVIDIA Graphics Card. This article is about speeding up PixInsight with a little thing called RAM Disk. What doe this cost? Well, some time to set up and 10GB -20GB of your RAM from your PC depending on how much you have to give. What you get in return depends on your system, for me it was was a nice increase
Before RAM Drive on Windows 11
Transfer MIB/s: 5236.526
After RAM Driver on Windows 11
Transfer MIB/s: 7484.106
So to set it up your RAM Disk just need to follow this article

Here is a YouTube video I did on setting up tweaks for your system for Temp Folders
