Apple to launch notebook with Intel Robson cache technology next week?

Posted on Friday, January 06 2006 @ 00:32:40 CET by

Sources claim Apple will launch a notebook next week that uses Intel's Robson cache technology, DigiTimes claims.

This technology uses NAND flash memory instead of a hard disk drive for starting up a computer or launching frequently used applications, and thus it boosts the computer's performance significantly, as well as the battery life.

There are three ways for Apple to use the Intel Robson technology:
The most convenient way would be to equip the device with a NAND flash disk on module (DOM) that would plug into an ATA slot.

Another method would be a combination memory solution, whereby Robson is deployed on the HDD. HDD makers would provide an addition density area that would be assigned to NAND flash.

The last solution, which is also the most direct solution, is to embedded the Robson-flash into a chipset or create an additional slot on the motherboard for such memory. However, this solution would involve the motherboard and chipset makers, so observers doubt the possibility.
