Interesting. What is the difference?

This question comes from a guy with a RAID of 15,000 RPM SAS drives
dedicated solely to Photoshop swap. I understand that is different
from what the system does when it does swapping but would love to
learn more about reducing the performance bottlenecks on my machine
(I'm pretty certain reliance on spinning disks is the primary
performance bottleneck in almost any machine still running.)
