Talk:Swap on video RAM

Resurrecting this article

I just followed this on my laptop and, as of 2022-06-08, it worked by replacing the module `slram` for `phram`. I'll update the article accordingly. Zertyz (talk) 20:26, 8 June 2022 (UTC)!

Flagged article

I suggest that we do not delete this article, but if feasible test and verify if this is still feasible with open source ATI/NVIDIA/Intel drivers and expand as needed making sure to provide the relevant warnings and notes where relevant. There are forum posts that I found on DuckDuckGo from within the last year or two so this topic does seem to be of interest on occassion and having an article that can steer people in the right direction may help to get those people the answers they need.

I didn't see why delete articles like this. Relevant feature, relevant info. For someone who seeks swap info, like me. If you have top-notch 6 GB card, and only look HD videos and doesn't use it most of the time, why doesn't take advantage or RAM storage. It is not SSD that count cycles. And maybe it faster that SSD? - PiroXiline (talk) 13:08, 30 October 2016 (UTC)
The problem with such feature is that very few people try/use it so no one could tell if it still works. So if any one used this feature recently, please report your result here. Thanks. --Fengchao (talk) 02:04, 6 February 2019 (UTC)
I believe that page should be deleted. I tried to use it with nouveau driver and it doesn't seem to work (doing any I/O breaks graphics). Additionally, it is not possible to use more space than specified in the region size, who would care about extra 64/128 MiB of RAM? Gentoo Wiki already removed the page on the same topic.

I don't think it should be removed. Method 2 works with all hardware i have tested (NVIDIA GP104M e.g.) using nvidia Coderobe (talk) 23:38, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
I second Coredobe. I tried the FUSE method with nvidia and it worked wonders, except for one freeze which I included a fix to in Troubleshooting. Sorry if I didn't do it correctly, it's my first time contributing to Arch Wiki. PS: Maybe the FUSE method should be moved up before MTD. - Atrate (talk) 13:17, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
