Does ready boost really help?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I've got a 16gb flash drive, if I use it for ready boost, how much performance am I gaining? Or is it helping at all?

I believe I read in an article somewhere, a long time ago, that ready boost only helps you if you've only got like 512MB of RAM. From 1GB and on, its unnoticeable. You have 6GB so forget about it.
