You don't need DRAM as games are more CPU and GPU intensive and spend more time reading data off the drive than writing to it. So you should be fine using this.

Using docker? If so, go dram for those /config folders (especially Plex). Otherwise, if your cache is solely for mover later to array, this is fine.

they're called semi-conductors for a reason Roll Eyes (Sarcastic), they do pass or fail depending on temp/voltage and current - otherwise UPS and high quality power supply companies would be out of business long ago...
Oh yeah, the transistor. PNP, NPN, emitter, base and collector. I came from the vacuum tube era and should have known this but my electrons just weren't flowing in the right direction.

Decades ago I used to work for a company that made variable resistors where a lot of the plant floor was dedicated to manual QC testing the product.

I stand corrected and educated.

Would have been tempted with this thing if it had DRAM, I have a WD green and it's somewhat infuriating as you can feel that it is reasonably fast enough at times, yet when it comes to certain tasks like copying lots of small files or working on updates, it's very noticeably slower than something like a Samsung 850 Evo. So consider me scarred for life against DRAM-less drives. But I guess it's a sign of the prices to come? 🙃

The general user and even gamers won't even notice it is d-ramless. Power users transferring a lot of big files often maybe. Pretty solid drive.
Excuse my ignorance on the topic, but I thought that DRAM would also be preferable if the drive was a boot drive? I am not sure if the reasoning is on the basis of performance or longevity, though..

DRam mainly helps in write speed. Booting is basically all read operations so not really affected. If you need huge and consistent large write speeds, then it may be needed for you. Maybe in a few games where they load a lot of data, ALOT, it may help. But in my previous testing on world of warcraft, the difference was 1 second to load a zone between an SSD with no ram vs an NVME so the difference for most people and gamers, is minimal. For large files I already download them directly to my HDD, i never really find myself needing to transfer extremely large files that often, or at all, off my SSDs.

Based on these two reviews I don't think there would be a noticeable difference. I didn't feel any when I was using my samsung vs my cheapo brands adata, kingston, crucial, inland dramless. Especially updates, those aren't IO intensive, generally CPU intensive unpackaging the updates. Did you have sufficient provisioning on the WD green ?
