after i read the toms hardware Analysis: Vista's Ready Boost is no match for RAM
i had a thought would it be possible to run sveral fast usb sticks in something a bit like a raid array ? :?:
if so i reckon you could potentially get a nice performance increase even if you did have to do a large amount editing vista? I'm not saying this can act as a substitute for ram but is this program at its full potential ? :?:
IMO it wouldn't really be worth it, I use my old flash drives that serve no purpose in readyboost and they work fine. But really when I get enough money I'll just add some RAM. Yes it is a cheap some what lame substitute but it works. I don't think the performance increase is too great but at least my old flash drives can serve a purpose...
When I built this computer I bought a usb drive, not for readyboost but so that I would have a easy & fast way to flash my bios. After actually doing that I had no use for it until I need to update my bios for some reason so I just left it plugged in. It's a 4gb drive I set 3gb for readyboost.
Does it make a difference... I have no idea but I figured I might as well put it to some use other than letting it sit and collect dust
