    It seems to use a ram disk, so performance improvement is possible. Windows already caches RAM though.

    Exactly. I'm wondering what else it offers that SuperFetch does not.

    It does have lazy writing... not sure I fully "Get" that feature.

    I've tried it, but because I have an SSD, it did .... absolutely nothing for me.

    My computer ran just as fast as it always did, and programs loaded instantly, just as they always did - I didn't notice a thing different, other than nearly 1GB of RAM 'set aside' for the cache (but with 4GB of RAM, that didn't bother me).

    But if you don't have an SSD, I suspect that you will really notice a difference - not with the first load of something, but any subsequent access during that session.

    I'm not really noticing any difference =\ but everything is already really fast.

    Maybe the difference can be better seen under heavy usage? (photo and videoediting, gaming and multitasking)
