    Will this help Firefox to startup faster and be more performing on the web too?

    "In summary, Memory compression allows Windows 10 to make better use of available memory on all systems by reducing physical memory utilization, resulting in fewer pagefile IO operations and a reduced reliance on disk. Furthermore, it improves the speed of writing to and reading from disk when MM determines paging must be enacted. In sum, we expect users to experience improved overall responsiveness and usability on all devices running Windows 10."

    The universal "no free lunch" principal implies that there must be a trade-off here. I'm assuming that memory compression is going to add to CPU load ( ? ) Also I would think that the benefit of memory compression would be seen mostly on systems with less installed ram.

    Now that this feature is available in the latest insider build I'm looking forward to third party reviews.

    Isn't the average lifespan of flash based hard drives already something like 87 years?

    Can we safely assume that if one has a lot of RAM (16GB or more) that this memory compression really isn't going to mean much to them?

    I find their statement a bit ambiguous since it doesn't explicitly mention Windows 10 Preview.
    They've introduced it to Windows 10, what else could it be except for Windows 10 or Windows 10 Preview?

    In Windows 10, we have added a new concept in the Memory Manager called a compression store, which is an in-memory collection of compressed pages...

    Windows 10 Memory Compression

    It was introduced in Windows 10 Insider 10525. If you compare it in task manager/resource monitor, the way Windows 10 handles RAM in build 10525 is a little bit different than 10240, it uses less page file and build 10525 is more snappier while doing the same task. Results may differ from user to user but in my case it is snappier.

  14. So Windows 10 still heavily relies on pagefile?! My system is at 120 kB with pagefile disabled. *Rolleyes

    The pagefile is and has always been an optimization allowing RAM to be used more efficiently. It is a place used to offload rarely used data so more RAM is available for more important purposes. Disabling the pagefile forces such data to remain in memory at all times, even if it is hardly ever used, even if it will never be used again. That is a crime against performance.

    Compression allows this rarely used data to take up less space in RAM. And in the event that this data is written to the pagefile more data can be read or written in less time. This is a good thing. Yes, it will take time to compress this data but the extra CPU load is quite small and the benefits well worth the cost.
