ReadyBoost Works A Treat

After hearing all the fuss about the new ReadyBoost technology incorporated in Windows Vista, i decided i would give it a try. So i went out a got myself a 1gb Flash driver plugged it in and got a message saying “Speed Up My System With ReadyBoost”. Now i wasn’t expecting miracles, in fact i was expecting to see a very minor change. To my amazement i found my system ran a LOT faster! programs ran miles quicker (even the big ones like photoshop) and the biggest boost i saw was the Windows Search witch is rapid now. Now if you want to benefit from this technology you need to buy/use the right pen, with all respect the majority of drives work with ReadyBoost straight up but there are some minimum requirements you need to follow:

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
