RAM speedup

As disks are slow and rsync reads and writes so much that for the bus this is the equivalent of context switching galore, would it be possible to use RAM as a buffer? Say, you have 10GB of spare RAM, rsync uses the bus to its peak for reading 10GB, then again for writing it down. This would be more efficient than lot of small read/write operations.

Thank you
