Windows 7: Intel Turbo Memory 1GB on Windows 7

Intel Turbo Memory 1GB on Windows 7


I have a possibility to buy cheap an intel turbo memory 1GB. The seller says that it works only on Vista, and that 512MB are for Vista ReadDrive, and 512MB are for Vista ReadyBoost. Can me someone explain in easiest words what is ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive? And will it work on Windows 7? And makes it any sense? What benefits can i have from using it.

My computer is an Compal FL90 laptop

Don't bother if you have 2GB installed already as regular ram. You will not notice an appreciable difference.

Readyboost uses memory other than RAM to increase system speed. It's mainly for low memory situations. Say 1GB or less will notice an improvement.

My advice: Don't bother.
