Windows SuperFetch is a technology in Windows Vista and onwards that is often misunderstood. I decided to delve into this technology to see what it is all about, and to dispel some of the myths surrounding this feature.

As wonderful a feature as people make it sound like me neither would benefit much from SuperFetch. I have only 1GB RAM and whenever I am on the computer I am doing memory-heavy things on it like f.ex. programming, 3D modeling or gaming. There simply isn't any memory left to cache anything.

I was planning to try Win7 RC out soon, but I'll have to disable SuperFetch. It'll most likely just slow the performance down in my case instead of boosting it.

Well, you should seriously consider upgrading from 1 GB RAM in 2009, especially if you are into FX, 3D and games ;)
