Intel announced today a new cache technology that “significantly reduces the time it takes for a notebook PC to power up or access programs”. The new Robson cache technology showed an almost immediate startup of a Centrino-based notebook during a live demonstration in Taipei. This new technology also improves battery life making it a great solution for the two things that are the bane of mobile users. The new cache utilizes NAND flash memory and boots from that instead of the hard drive. The Robson cache uses conventional NAND flash memory in capacities from 64MB to 4GB. This is huge news for mobile users.
