Intel® Turbo Memory is a primary PC component, along with the CPU, chipset, and system memory. It caches large amounts of frequently used data or user selected applications for faster access by the processor. This decreases the need for hard-disk accesses, saving both time and power, which equates to increased performance and energy efficiency
That's good news for users who run data-intensive software like media applications. It's also a good match to the substantial system requirements to load and run Windows Vista.
Intel Turbo Memory is a single solution that accelerates data transfer both to and from the processor.
Notebooks based on Intel Centrino Duo and Intel Centrino Pro processor technology that incorporate Intel Turbo Memory gain substantial benefits:
- Reduce boot time. Faster access to boot-up files lets the system start up more quickly.
- Improve application responsiveness. Data coming from Intel Turbo memory instead of the hard drive increases access speed.
- Accelerate application loading. Fast access by the processor to information needed to launch applications cuts lag time.
- Enhance Windows Vista. Support for Windows Vista performance features like ReadyBoost, ReadyDrive, and Superfetch helps you take better advantage of the operating system.
- Save energy. Pre-storing information reduces hard-disk spin time, which saves power.
¹ Tests run on latest generation Intel® Centrino® processor technology with optional Intel® Turbo Memory enabled against like systems without Intel® Turbo Memory. Results may vary based on hardware, software and overall system configuration. All tests and ratings reflect the approximate performance of Intel products as measured by those tests. All testing was done on Microsoft Vista Ultimate (build 6000). Application load and runtime acceleration depend on Vista’s preference to pre-load those applications into the Microsoft ReadyBoost cache. Boot-time performance depends on BIOS and POST execution times as well as hard drive performance. Power savings will depend upon the system power management settings as well as the specific hard drive used.

About Intel Products
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC; SEHK: 4335) is the world's largest semiconductor company and the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in many personal computers. Founded in 1968 as Integrated Electronics Corporation and based in Santa Clara, California, USA, Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network cards and ICs, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors, and other devices related to communications and computing. Originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, Intel's successful "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names. During the 1990s, Intel invested heavily in new microprocessor designs and in fostering the rapid growth of the PC industry. During this period Intel became the dominant supplier of microprocessors for PCs.
