MSI to bundle Intel Robson with motherboards

MSI said at Computex that it will bundle Intel Turbo Memory cards with its motherboards:
For starters, MSI is going to bundle a PCIe x1 card with around 1GB of flash memory, and we expect that Asus and Gigabyte will follow suit. The engineers we talked to told us that putting this memory onto a PCIe slot makes real sense, because it will not be sensitive to load of USB bus, and this is the tech Chipzilla intended it to be used. Notebook designs feature a mini-PCIe slot.

The cost of the boards should be offset with the increased performance we have already seen, but desktop drives offer higher performance than 5400 rpm drives Intel was using to demonstrate Robson at last years' IDF Fall in San Francisco.
