Intel Robson technology to halve boot times

Posted on Wednesday, June 07 2006 @ 21:02:49 CEST by


Intel presented its Robson NAND flash based cache technology at Computex. This technology will become available in early 2007 and will cut boot times nearly in halve, boost overall software performance and prolong battery life.
According to Patterson, Robson will come in 256MB, 512MB or 1GB options, and the NAND flash will be installed in notebooks either on a PCI Express (PCIe) micro card or embedded on the motherboard, although do to limited real estate most OEMs are expected to opt for an embedded solution.

The solution will also include an ASIC and will require Intel's storage Matrix driver. Eventually, the support coming from the ASIC will migrate to the I/O controller hub (ICH), Patterson indicated.

Industry sources suggested that the ASIC supporting Robson should cost about US$5-6, and with 8Gbit NAND flash currently priced at about US$18, the total cost of Robson is already within the US$20 range.
