    IDF :: New Robson boosted Centrino coming Q1 2007

    Early 2007 will see the launch of yet another Centrino platform, code named Santa Rosa. The new generation Centrino will be based on Intel's Crestline chipset and feature 802.11n WiFi technology. However, the biggest talking point about the new platform is its use of Robson technology.

    Very interesting.

    I watched a video last night on Microsoft's 'Channel 9' website about Vista and hybrid HDD's (HDD's with a small amount of flash memory on them) and was impressed. It wasn't the load time for apps etc. that realy got me but the way that a HDD would spin itself down as the flash handled the many small writes that the O/S would normaly make to the HDD. Another step towards dealing with battery consumption in a laptop.

    They also mentioned that at the moment the read/write speeds of flash memory are allmost doubling each year compared a 10% or so increase in HDD speeds, another interesting fact
