CAD Manager's Toolbox: You can never have too much memory when working with CAD applications. This Windows feature increases your memory resources while keeping costs in check


I know that many CAD managers aren't using Microsoft Windows 7 yet, but with more machines shipping with the new operating system every day, I wanted to pass along a tip about a very cool Windows component called ReadyBoost.

It's a simple fact that any information in a computer is either contained in RAM (memory chips) or stored on a hard drive (a mechanical disk). It's another simple fact that RAM is fast and hard drives are slow, and the more often the hard drive is accessed, the slower your computer becomes. The problem with CAD applications is that they require so much RAM that hard drive access is frequent, and computer performance suffers as a result.
