Intel Turbo Memory on T500

Hi all,

 

So i have got the 2GB module Intel Turbo Memory on my T500 but I am not sure if it even works!! Also I have noticed that there is apparently this software called "Intel Dashboard" which you can use to pin your softwares in ... But the problem is that this software is not installed on my laptop nor can I find it anywhere online!!! what should I do ?

 

Thanks

Re: Intel Turbo Memory on T500

If you are using the default installation your Turbo Memory should already be in use. You can turn it off or change what it is used for in the utility you should find in the Programs menu (as I am not typing this on my T500 I am not sure under what name it is, should be something like Intel Turbo Memory). But you probably don't need to change any of the settings.

 

By default it should be set to use both ReadyDrive and ReadyBoost. I have it left on this setting.

 

Many people argue if it has any use at all - I think it does become useful to speed up things.

Re: Intel Turbo Memory on T500

I actually have a software already installed named "Intel Turbo Memory Consoul" and it seems that everything is activated and that, hopefully, it will increase the overall speed.

 

However, the point is that it seems that there is this software "Intel Turbo Memory Dashborad" which you may use to actually "Pin" your program manually! Unfortunately I can not find any url to get this software online!

Re: Intel Turbo Memory on T500

IIRC, to activate the user pinning modus including dash board and sidebar gagdet, you have to install the turbo memory console with the option "-UP".

Unfortunately it did not work for me in the end, it said "no compatible hardware found" or something. So I switched back to normal Ready Boost mode.
