Robson makes use of the NAND flash memory to store part of the OS that requires heavy hard disk access as well as storing frequent used applications. The demonstration surrounds two similarly configured Centrino notebooks but one is without Robson. The notebook with Robson booted up within seconds and launched applications far quicker than the notebook without Robson. Intel declines to go into greater details how Robson works but more details will be revealed in the next IDF in Spring.More info over at VR-Zone.
