4. Windows VISTA ReadyBoost

- Windows VISTA ReadyBoost

Under Windows Vista, the AutoPlay function gives you the opportunity to enable the ReadyBoost function.

Obviously, using the maximum possible space on your USB device will give the best results:

After enabling the ReadyBoost function, we ran several tests to see what kind of change we would see in our test system:

Without ReadyBoost

With ReadyBoost

In the memory bandwidth test, we saw some increase in the results. But how is this change reflected in our system? The most obvious would be to measure if ReadyBoost can help us decrease our Windows Vista load time. So we measured, several times, the amount of time needed, from the POST screen until Vista fully loads. The difference between the two (with and without the ReadyBoost function enabled) was very small 1~2 secs in all cases. This leads us to the conclude that probably for systems with 2GB and higher on board memory, ReadyBoost won't help you much. In cases where a system has very low on board memory, say 512MB, we expect to see some improvement in performance.
