Memory and Cache Tuning for Optimised Performance

Windows system RAM and cache memory are complicated areas designed to speed-up how Windows works. For example, cache RAM speeds-up your PC by providing a temporary storage area for hardware devices that talk to each other at different speeds, such as your hard disk and processor, meaning that the fastest device is not constantly waiting on the slower one. Swap memory makes use of a file on your hard disk as an overspill when the main system RAM becomes full. Windows comes with predefined settings designed to fit all possible situations. However, by tailoring the way that RAM and cache memory is used by your particular system, performance improvements can be made to speed-up your system. In this article, we look at some of the best performance-boosting techniques and also the best free RAM management tools available, which you will find on this website.
