Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of memory modules and flash products, today announced a line of USB drives that are designed and tested specifically to support the ReadyBoost feature of Microsoft Windows Vista.




Windows Vista introduces a new concept in adding memory to a system. Windows ReadyBoost lets you use a removable USB flash drive to improve system performance, without the bother of opening your chassis to upgrade system memory. ReadyBoost improves system performance by taking advantage of the extremely fast Access Time offered by flash technology.

IMO I'd much rather add more ram to get even better performance than have loads of USB drives sticking out all over the place... I can just imagine some people trying to get the most they can out of Vista and having 8 types of USB drive all over the place. :(

it could help get more ram on your aunts computer if you were visiting her and wanted to play some games on her computer. though vista is for noobs, and they will like the idea, jajajaja... j/king it will be a good o/s for companys since they dont care about all the call home and crap.

Well, its not for noobs, sense its the only way to get DX10, it will be expensive.
The ReadyBoost drives will not help for gaming...the usb bandwidth is to low for that use...trying to swap large amounts (Say, Over 2gigs) over the usb 2.0 interface it will bog down the whole system more if it is trying to move data from the hard drives or graphics card at the same time.

This may change soon though, I don't know much about the newest chipsets (Post N-Force4) They may be changing the architecture so the usb has more for that purpose.
