My System Specs

Default P55

I was just watching picture of the computex and I saw on all the P55 mobo a little slot like a Sodimm slot just under the 4 DDR3 slot. Can anyone tell me WTH is that?

Regard

Look at the black slot on the down right of the Memory slot

I was wondering that myself when I first saw them. Apparently, it's a slot for using Intel's Robson feature. Google it for some info.

A little surprising, because Robson was originally aimed at the laptop market, and these days, I'd think the only thing Robson could offer over SSD's is lower communications latency. Guess we'll see.
