DigiTimes reports most motherboard makers are pessimistic about putting Turbo Memory in desktop computers.
Motherboard makers have the option to either purchase a Turbo Memory expansion card from Intel or purchase Intel's controller chip and NAND Flash to embed on the motherboard. Most of the makers will choose to put the technology on their motherboards, according to sources at motherboard makers.
