    Yes...read boost was a feature that came with windows Vista. Basically it's for systems with older hardware that's slow and outdated with not enough RAM to help give it a "BOOST", hence the terminology of Ready Boost. With most modern systems it's not a viable option anymore. Here's a few articles to explain it all.
