SSD and ReadyBoost


ZBoater

Recommended Posts

With a SSD, does it even make sense to have a ReadyBoost drive?

 

My HP 2133 Mini netbook has a flash card reader and I had a 4GB SanDisk Extreme in there using it as a ReadyBoost drive. If I replace the Hitachi HD with a Corsair P128, I am thinking ReadyBoost becomes obsolete.

He he. I love it when I get to answer my own question. :roll:

 

The answer is "no ZBoater, you do not need to use ReadyBoost if you have a SSD as your system drive. As a matter of fact, it will hinder your performance significantly..."

 

Attached is a screenshot of CrystalDiskMark on my Vista HP2133 netbook with ReadyBoost and without. Notice the difference in write speed is like three and four fold ... :bigeyes:

LOL! You asked the question after we closed yesterday and then found the answer before we opened today, but good work keep it up and I would be out of a job if everyone could do that.
