Intel released more details about its upcoming Santa Rosa mobile platform at the IDF in Taipei, Taiwan. This platform will be launched in the first quarter of next year and will feature more processor power, graphics power and wireless network speed.
One of the new technologies is Robson, a cache technology that uses NAND flash memory. Robson will make notebooks faster and will decrease power consumption as well.
At IDF Taipei trade-show Intel unveiled that the Santa Rosa platform and Crestline chipsets would support Intel NAND technology, which is known under Robson code-name. Intel NAND technology is a combination of 64MB – 4GB NAND flash cache for storage sub-system of a desktop or notebook as well as a special software that pre-caches frequently used data from the hard disk drive (HDD) to the cache. This results in very rapid access to system or launch files, which ensures high performance of the computer in general.
