Windows Vistas System Accelerators
Microsoft has debuted the final names for Windows Vista’s system accelerator features:
- Windows SuperFetch: preloads commonly used applications into memory
- Windows ReadyBoost: uses flash memory (USB/SD/CF) to boost system performance
- Windows ReadyDrive: uses hybrid hard drives (HDs that also have solid state memory) to boot faster, resume faster, and use a lot less battery power
These are all some pretty cool ideas, and show some original thinking at Microsoft. I just hope people who can get good use of out them, do, and that manufacturers actually deliver the hybrid hard drives.
