Windows 7: Page File in a Flash Drive

Page File in a Flash Drive

So, i was thinking, i read somewhere that Flash Drives have very good read rates, and that's why Ready Boost uses them.

I was wondering, does this work for page file? Will i notice an improvement?


PS: I'm using two flash drives ( 2 and 16 GB ) with ready boost. I have 12 GB of RAM, is there a difference in performance?

A flash drive coming from USB is nowhere near as fast as coming from your hard drive. Probably 3-4x slower in throughput.

So? Thats a no?

Also, there is a little program called PRIO that saves the priority changes you make. I wanted to know if setting all of the Svchost to High priority would be a good move?
