Momentum Cache - 1 drive ONLY?!

Please explain to me WHY only 1 Crucial SSD drive can have Momentum Cache can be active on ONLY 1 drive at a time?

Explain the "technical" problems associated with enabling it on ANY/ALL drives please.

Or is this just simply SLOPPY and INEFFICIENT coding? (Or just plain stupid)

I don't know what technical limitations there are (you're not gonna find Momentum's devs on this forum I expect!)

 

But I'd imagine RAM requirements for maintaining a large RAM cache across multiple drives plays a factor.  At 4GB a drive you're gonna want 16GB of RAM in your system to optimally use that feature across 2 drives and have plenty left over for Windows I guess?  I wodner how many people have that?  Crucial would know better than most I spose since that's their core business.

Re: Momentum Cache - 1 drive ONLY?!

Well with my system, RAM certainly isn't an issue - I have 64gb.  Regardless of the requirements, it should be an available option.

 

I thought their devs replied on this forum as well.  Guess I'll have to make a phone call on Monday.

 

Irritating.

The software will have been developed by Micron's engineers I assume.  I don't think any of them post on here but I'm sure Crucial's staff that frequent here will be able to forward suggestions and concerns on to them.
