Inquirer "Superfetch" story is crap

Posted by bink on July 22 2005, 8:10 PM. Posted in Windows XP.

Iquirer posted a story called: 'Longhorn's most useful feature "leaked "as XP tweak' stating that the Windows Vista (longhorn) new superfetch feature is also available in Windows XP.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\Prefetcher

you will notice in windows xp

EnablePrefetcher = 3 and you will notice in windows longhorn EnableSuperfetch = 1

Well, guess what? You can put the EnableSuperfetch = 1 in windows xp and get the same speed.

So I checked with Windows internals guru Mark Russinovich, he said this won't work, "SuperFetch" stringĀ isn't even in the kernel (check with strings.exe)
