With Vista now becoming the OS of choice, TwinMOS have announced their new Mobile Disk-M9 which supports Vista's ReadyBoost feature, this designed to allow solid-state flash-based memory to be used for virtual memory and reducing overall hdd access.
Details on the new Disk-M9 here folks.
March 20, 2007, Taipei?The Microsoft Windows VistaTM is not only required high-capacity DRAM modules, but also boosts the growth of NAND flash memory from ReadyBoost function. The ReadyBoost technology of Microsoft VistaTM can automatically distribute the capacity of any external memory device (EMD), such as mobile disks, and assign the excessive space for system use to accelerate the operating system. In this case, flash memory will be used as virtual memory on Microsoft VistaTM. In addition to accelerating the system startup function, it reduces hard drive access to extend drive life. When users unplug the mobile disk from the system, the data on the mobile disk will not be lost, nor will the system operation be affected. Moreover, the system will run at its original efficiency.
