OCZ helps Vista owners with VBoost drives

OCZ VBoost Drive

OCZ has just grown its still-young jumpdrive line with the VBoost. Instead of focusing only on storage, the memory stick serves as a companion to notebooks and other systems where low RAM or slower hard drives affects the performance of Windows Vista; plugging the VBoost in uses Vista's ReadyBoost to provide a cache that speeds disk and memory access. The design is also designed as truly portable with capless design that slides the USB connector back inside when not in use.

The system component maker is already shipping the VBoost in 1GB, 2GB, and 4GB models to accommodate both basic and advanced users. Every trim level comes with a keyring, strap, and extension cable for particularly tight spots. Prices aren't available but should vary depending on the reseller and the capacity.
