Certainly there is, and it's the requirement of fully disabling of UAC to do so, that breaks everything. The entire point is; why bother if it breaks nearly everything else?

Basically, it allows an application that needs to (yam is the only miner that does this atm), to allot substantial portions of the available system memory to paging for the task, and increases the performance of an application specifically designed to make use of it by quite a bit. Hugepages is the Unix based term for it, Large-pages is the Windows terminology for the same thing.
It's not dependent on cpu type or brand, but it seems to have a greater effect on Intel based systems. I've got it working fine on my 1090T, an x2 270 Regor, and my 3570k at the moment. Although, the AMD chips I have at my disposal, don't quite seem to live up to the same increase in performance with hugepages active, as my Intel chip does. The latter of which, gains nearly 1/3 more performance with hugepages enabled.Edited by ForceProjection - 1/10/14 at 8:41am
