FUD Zilla reports the first Calpella notebooks with P55 chipset won't support Intel's Braidwood flash memory technology. This feature will have to wait until the P57 chipset arrives in Q1 2010.
Calpella Q3 2009 relies only on discrete graphics and Braidwood support will have to wait for P57 chipset that is scheduled to launch in Q1 2010.
Braidwood promises better responsiveness and faster boot time and this time, Intel plans to release 4GB to 16GB modules that should make the difference. Braidwood is a successor of not so successful Intel Turbo cache technology for Montevina platform, as like Braidwood it promised a lot faster computer that failed to happen. It slightly improved response and boot times, but only slightly.
