Smart Ram / Ram Boosters

If anyone has heard of those type of softwares (like WinAshampoo's RAM Booster or something like that). I would like to know if these work in Windows 7?

my favorite is the one by IOBit. It comes with their Advanced System Care something like that XD

I think the better question would be, does anybody know if these applications work, PERIOD. I don't believe they do anything positive. And with RAM as cheap as it is, why invest in software when RAM can be had so cheap???

Yes, they work. The apps will dump RAM content to page, and some will even create their own "version of a page file". Do they serve a valid purpose? Yes. They generate revenue with sizzle.

Save your money. Buy steaks. Or RAM.

Yes, you gotta, hafta, wanna love the vagaries of linguistic interpretation ...

I'll pass on the steak, being a vegetarian, and go for the RAM rather than the ram ...

From all the research I've done over the years, "ram boosting" or "ram defragging" or "ram optimizing" software does nothing more than standard background tasks that windows already does.

Ram is fast enough it doesn't need to be 'defragged'. As for 'boosting' or 'optimizing', you really are better off just getting more ram. There is no better system performance gain than more ram. I've run XP, Vista, and 7 on systems with less then 1g and my current system with 6g triple channel. The more ram my system had, the better it ran, regardless of CPU speed.

The "More RAM = better it ran" scenario worked a treat in the XP era but from my everyday experience with Vista since 2005 and Windows 7 from Technet 2008 its a different story altogether.

By design Vista / Windows 7 use all available RAM for caching applications running on SATA, ultra fast RAID disks even SSD drives rather than leaving the RAM for the 'user space' so we can experience a responsive computing experience that isn't weighed down by user/OS RAM contention issues.

Interesting to note Windows 2008 Server R2 has no such prefetching service 'built in' and is therefore optimised for Enterprise applications. Pity Microsoft can't do the same on the *users* desktop.

Back to running Windows 2008 Server R2 x64 on the desktop lol
