Thumbs up Ready Boost

I added a 2GB Adata USB RB stick in the arse of my rig. OS asked me if I want to use it for caching or just regular use, then after I choose Ready boost it asked me how many MB should be used for this job. Many times I have several progs open and sometimes I run something in background while gaming. Things are better now. Transition between programs or minimizing a game and then geting back into it is faster than before ! So a well done job Matt Ayers!

What are the requirements for ReadyBoost? To make use of ReadyBoost you’ll need:

"Windows Vista
PC with a free USB 2.0 port
A USB flash device which is:
- Between 250MB and 4GB in size
- The device must be capable of 2.5MB/sec throughput for 4K random reads and 1.75MB/sec for random writes "

Yeah heard about this today, looks cool as.

Verbatim have got USB keys which run U3 and ReadyBoost simultaneously. Which is cool.

If you have a second HDD you can set the "page file" to be on the that second drive it'll speed things up a bit !

ReadyBoost would appear, from what others have found, to have the biggest impact when your computer doesn't have enough RAM. Throwing another GB of RAM in the system seems to have a bigger impact than a very large ReadyBoost cache.

After all, if there's the RAM to keep it all in, there's no reason to hit a secondary cache.
