  3. Benefits of updating firmware software of Nokia 6680?

    Dear All,

    I never updated the firmware software of my Nokia 6680 before and I think I'm gonna do it soon but... do I really need to do it?

    If I updated the firmware, would I get a new user interface and Icons as in the ones of N and E series?

    Would I get the bluetooth A2DP Profile?

    Any new applications?

    Regards,

    Hadi

    Benefits of Disabling Cache

    Welcome to the forum.

    Which cache are you talking about? Modern versions of Windows have several caches.

    I only disable the Swap, when there is enough RAM installed in the machine, because the RAM is always going to be faster than a hard drive.

    I wouldn't bother. Windows will only use the swap file if it's needed.

    Windows does not even touch the Swap file if you have enough RAM. I have over 12 GB in my machines and the Swap file is never used. It also wears out the hard drive more, if have a large RAM cache, but never take advantage of it.

    Only one machine that I have, uses the actual Hard Drive cache. That is one that only has 4 GB, which runs a lot of system intensive processes that has to also have a fast enough hard drive, to handle what the programs I run on it need.

    If there is enough RAM, you are using an SSD, shut off Swap and let the machine handle it in RAM and save the SSD.

  10. Hi Everyone,
    Thanks for your answers. I really didn´t know there were different kinds. I read that one of the benefits of disabling cache is that when a site has, for example, a new logo, you can see it if the cache for that or any site is disabled. If it wasn´t, you would be stuck seeing the old one and that you have more space (but what is that space good for?), but I mean, there has to be more benefits than that, right?

    It is more trial and error than anything. I run Crush FTP on my machine that only has 4 gb and have no issues with it needing to swap.

    My two laptops have 12 GB and fast enough CPU's, that Swap was never being used, so I just shut it off and let the RAM handle. Those two are mainly just for email & Web browsing, some word processing and spreadsheets, which are just basic.

    If gaming, you want the Seap, you need a fast enough hard drive to handle the heavy hauling between the CPU and APU/GPU.

    Use Resource monitor to its full advantage to help you find the best settings.
