fastest disk ever?

So I’ve been using this ‘AMD Ramdisk’ product.. I’m probably going to start using it at home also…

http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/radeon-memory/Pages/ramdisk-overview.aspx

here is a benchmark I Just got from taking a database backup BACKUP DATABASE successfully processed 236395 pages in 3.220 seconds (573.551 MB/sec).

Yes, I backed up a 2gb database in 3.2 seconds.

In contrast, when I run this backup on ######, backing up the same database on a different server to F:Backup I only get 30mb/sec BACKUP DATABASE successfully processed 186530 pages in 47.500 seconds (30.679 MB/sec).
