Has that changed?

It is designed as a 'smart cache' for flash memory (including knowing that random writes can be a bit slow), so is ideally suited for SSDs. It writes out the most actively referenced 'stuff' to the SSD at bootup, keeps it updated periodically, then has a quick place to pull it this data from when needed. Perfect for SSDs.Many users do not realize they can use their SSDs as ReadyBoost caches, but indeed you can
