Intel Braidwood technology delayed to 2011

Anonymous sources told Bit Tech that Intel has delayed the introduction of the Braidwood SSD cache technology to sometime in 2011:
This is apparently due to several reasons: firstly, NAND prices are going up due to limited supply and general underinvestment this year from NAND manufacturers and it was hinted that in its current state as part of the P57 platform, it doesn't really do much for performance.

Since all went quiet on the Eastern front after Computex, we suspected that Intel would not launch Braidwood this year, however such a significant delay is still surprising.
