Thanks for the links. The articles are a bit dated, and don't pertain to Windows 7. So this is why I wanted to explore ReadyBoost, to see if there's any improvement in my system. I've already have 4 gigs of memory in my system, and that's all I can use with my 32 bit version of W7. So if I can boost memory a little using ReadyBoost, or if nothing else add a little more stability to my system, then it'll be worth it. It's really no big deal as a 4 gig USB flash drive only costs around $ 7.00.
So far I'm not noticing any major change, but my computer is running very smooth.
Well from what I've read, using up to 4 gigs is recommended, over that is a waste. They say you should use between one and three times what ram memory you have. So I went with a 4 gig USB flash drive.
My opinion is, for some reason, the software engineers at Microsoft think ReadyBoost is a good idea, or else they wouldn't have included it in Vista and Windows 7. Who am I to question their wisdom ??
So this being a beta test, I want to try it out and see. Any tweak that improves my computer's performance is welcome. I don't know how I can rate any added performance, so I'll just keep it installed and see how well the computer runs. So far so good !!
On my Asus p5b-Plus [Vista Edition] motherboard I've simply enabled ASAP, not that I think that it makes that much of a difference. I think I may also add a flash drive to see if I can also enable Ready Boost.
