LAS VEGAS (January 9, 2006) — Today CorsairÂ®, a worldwide leader in high performance computer products, announced immediate availability of its TurboFlash Family of ReadyBoost™ capable USB drives. MicrosoftÂ®‘s new ReadyBoost technology allows the use of a removable flash memory device to improve Windows Vista system performance by acting as cache memory.
Corsair’s TurboFlash takes full advantage of
Microsoft’s new ReadyBoost flash technology concept to help improve
system performance for Windows Vista™ – the next generation of Windows
client operating system. Although adding system memory (RAM) is often the
best way to improve your PC’s performance, Corsair’s TurboFlash can
boost system performance by retaining data the system can quickly store and
retrieve to maximize PC responsiveness. Data stored on a flash memory device
can be accessed much more quickly than data kept on the hard disk.
Corsair’s TurboFlash also provides reliable encrypted protection of the
data stored on it to prevent inappropriate access. TurboFlash is validated by
Microsoft to be fully Windows ReadyBoost compliant and is compatible on all
versions of Windows Vista.
