I can't find it now, but I read it in a blog on the Microsoft homepage some years ago.

But as I understood it: The pagefile is built in at a so low level and is so optimized, so that when they added the possibility to disable it they didn't actually remove or bypass any code in the kernel.
All code that has to do with the pagefile is still used whether the file exists or not. And he claimed that it performance wise is better to have a small pagefile instead of none, because of how this is done.
Wrong is evil and must be defeated. - Jeff Ello
