Apacer has completed the flash drives testing of the ReadyBoost function of Microsoft Windows Vista.
“Windows Vista offers better multimedia capability, but also increases the requirements of system hardware,” says Hans Steyn, Apacer brand manager at Pinnacle Micro. “ReadyBoost makes it easier and more affordable to enhanced PC performance by adding memory through any USB 2.0 port.
“The read/write speeds of Apacer’s Handy Steno flash drive series is up to 200X and, when used with ReadyBoost, can improve a system’s performance by up to 50%. Simply put, using an Apacer flash drive is an easy way to make applications running on Vista faster.”
With functional design, faster read/write speeds, and a wide range of memory capacity available for flash drives, Apacer has worked with Microsoft to promote the functionality of ReadyBoost, says Steyn.
“When several applications running simultaneously in a test platform with 256Mb and 512Mb RAM, Apacer flash drives can increase performance by more than 40%. All users need do is use an Apacer flash drive, and after some customisation under settings, they will work simply with ReadyBoost to provide a reliable way to expand system memory.”
