HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first and only industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. By delivering crystal-clear, all-digital audio and video via a single cable, HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and helps provide consumers with the highest-quality home theater experience. HDMI provides an interface between any audio/video source, such as a set-top box, DVD player, or A/V receiver and an audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV), over a single cable. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on a single cable. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel, 192kHz, uncompressed digital audio and all currently-available compressed formats (such as Dolby Digital and DTS), HDMI 1.3 adds additional support for new lossless digital audio formats Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio™ with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements.

Intel® Turbo Flash Memory and Robson Technology

Intel Turbo Flash Memory is an internal PCI Express device that uses new Robson technology to increase system responsiveness, make multi-tasking faster, and extend battery life. Robson non-volatile memory technology is designed to take advantage of the performance-accelerating capabilities of the Microsoft Vista operating system. These capabilities include:
  • Microsoft Superfetch - memory management technology, which significantly reduces disk read for typical user workloads by aggressively pre-fetching disk pages.
  • Microsoft ReadyBoost - technology, which allows users to increase the speed of frequently used applications by using system memory devices (Robson, USB drives, SD cards, Compact Flash, etc.) as a write-through virtual memory OS page cache.
  • Microsoft ReadyDrive - command set used by Windows Vista to cache small HDD writes to platform non-volatile memory (either as part of the platform or as part of a disk).

Although other forms of non-volatile memory such as USB drives can be used with these features, Robson's integrated design takes unique advantage of Vista's performance accelerators. As an internal device, Robson eliminates the need for end user configuration. In addition, PCI Express devices support higher bandwidths and consume less power than USB 2.0 devices.
