The use of Readyboost devices in a HP laptop with Windows 7, 4 GB of RAM and an AMD A4000 CPU with integrated graphics is unnecessary. Agree or disagree? Thank you!

Greetings oldtoot,

From what I have been told Readyboost is ideal for slower HDD-equipped PCs. I found an article with more information for you to read regarding ReadyBoost. See also this quote:

ReadyBoost provides the most significant performance improvement under the following circumstances:

  • The computer has a slow hard disk drive. Computers with a primary hard disk Windows Experience Index (WEI) subscore lower than 4.0 will see the most significant improvements.
  • The flash storage provides fast, random, non-sequential reads. Sequential read speed is less important.
  • The flash storage is connected by a fast bus. Typically, USB memory card readers are not sufficiently fast. However, connecting flash memory to an internal memory card reader might provide sufficient performance.

From SOURCE

Hope that clears things up for you. :happy:
