Myths about SuperFetch

One of the biggest myth about SuperFetch is that disabling SuperFetch will increase the system speed. It is not at all true. This depends totally on the hardware of the computer and the operating system. One cannot generalize the effect of SuperFetch that it will slow the system speed or not. In systems where hardware is not new, the processor is slow and on that they are using an operating system like Windows 10 then it is advisable to disable SuperFetch, but in newer generations computer where hardware is up to mark then it is advised to enable SuperFetch and let it do its work as there will be less boot up time and application launch time will also be minimum. SuperFetch is purely dependent on your RAM size also. The larger the RAM the more good work SuperFetch will do. SuperFetch results are based on hardware configurations, generalizing it for every system in the world without knowing the hardware and the operating system the system is using is just baseless. Moreover, it is recommended that if your system is running well then leave it on, it will not degrade your computer’s performance anyway.
