Seems to me that this somewhat defeats the purpose of the swapfile, and may
be less effective than eliminating the swapfile altogether with this much
RAM.

Unless there is a problem with the OS (despite warnings) not having any
swapfile defined.  If this is the case, that the ramdisk is just a way of
getting around this OS shortcoming, at the price of some performance and
capacity (compared to no swapfile).

I also found a way to get your system to perform even better, take a look at
this web
site.  Note: you need a lot of memory for these apps...

Use their ramdisk software to put your swapfile in a ramdisk.  No more seek
time at
all.  No HD access...
Take a look at the SuperSpeed...
