Longhorn Blogs presents the names of several of the Performance Features that will come with Windows Vista. They are Windows SuperFetch, Windows ReadyBoost(formerly code-named “EMD”) and Windows ReadyDrive (formerly code-named “Piton”).
Windows SuperFetch is a memory management innovation in Windows Vista that helps make your PC consistently responsive by tracking what applications are used most on a given machine and intelligently preloading these applications into memory.

Windows ReadyBoost (formerly code-named “EMD”) makes PCs running genuine Windows Vista more responsive by using flash memory on a USB drive, SD Card, Compact Flash, or other memory form factor to boost system performance.

Windows ReadyDrive (formerly code-named “Piton”) enables Windows Vista PCs equipped with a hybrid hard drive to boot up faster, resume from hibernate in less time, and preserve battery power. Hybrid hard drives are a new type of hard disk that integrates non-volatile flash memory with a traditional hard drive.
