The SuperFetch feature is used to load files that are often accessed into RAM for faster access and thus improved performance. When Windows 8 is installed on a solid state drive, the feature is not needed anymore as the access times of an SSD are similar to the ones of the RAM. However, the feature is turned on by default, but if Windows 8 detects that an SSD is used, the SuperFetch feature will not be active.
