Some of the custom roms you see generating ultra-high benchmark scores include adding an ext-type linux filesystem to the SD card, and using that for the OS swap space, rather than on-board memory.

No idea why that seems to improve things - but it does. As the article says - at a cost - because that part of the SD card is being extensively hit with reads and writes.
