Maybe... But RAM is faster than swap.

EDIT: Processor needs higher freq, like 800 or 1000MHZ

Bro our cpu it's slow,and the swap it's slow too ,because it will never be like the real ram.all the new phones have 1ghz+ at processor,even dual-core,our phones was the pioneers in this ""revolution" of smartphones,but life goes on,and the technology too

Well, I donīt know why ppl want to have ICS on X8. I really donīt know even why they need OC on a mobile device . It sound like ppl want better technologies on a limited device. For swap you may get shorter life in your sdcard. If you donīt care about it, you may need class 4 or higher to get good performance with swap, with class 2 it should be so slow .
BTW, Iīm happy with 2.3.x ROM, and I wonīt change it. I really donīt see anything that may change my mind for now.
Does someone may show some benefit on running ICS on X8?

Cheers,

Ok, it should be cool, but it wonīt be that cool if it slow down your device, will it be?
It sounds like run a game on a moderated PC, or you run this slowly, or youīll need to remove features from the game to make it run faster.
So, I guess we should not be so anxious about it, since we didnīt have MIUI ROM on this device , and MIUI ROM is really beautiful and it donīt require too much from device like ICS should do . I flashed MIUI on my boss Milestone and loved it, but donīt have it on my little X8

Too early to draw any conclusions me thinks. It's obviously much more likely that it won't run well at all in our X8 and people should just accept that, but we'll never know for sure until someone tries it out. I've been reading about ICS and they mention improved performance on stuff like multitasking, menus and usability. So they're optimizing the overall system, how code works and stuff, so in theory it could still run considerably well in a low-end device like ours, if ram and cpu limitations can be overcome somehow.

I have been talking to a Dev over on the legend form and he says it running smooth and fast with no oc in the kernel he all so sayed its the SDk 4.* the only problem at the min is the mouse pointer and to start it you need to get the highest gb rom you have and edit init.rc in ramdisk
The legend is allmost the same as are wee x8 bar the ram and camera so I say if wee can do something with the ram it would be got to port it it just what I think as people sayed we will never get gb or froyo and look now

super.sense on x8
