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. Intel Turbo Memory is a single solution that accelerates data transfer both to and from the processor.
