activated. RAMCache turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost
game-load times to stratospheric levels, and minimizes risk of data
Minimizing lag is a full-time job. Luckily, ROG motherboards deliver
the sucker punch of superior hardware and software — so you can focus
on your game, while your board lands lag a knock-out blow
