Group Forms to Push ReadyBoost, Hybrid Drives
Companies including Dell, Microsoft and Intel announce the formation of a new group to promote the adoption of nonvolatile memory, or NAND flash, in PC storage applications. (ExtremeTech)Companies including Dell, Microsoft, and Intel announced on May 30 the formation of a new group to promote the adoption of nonvolatile memory, or NAND flash, in PC storage applications. The NVMHCI (Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface) Working Group, as its being called, will be chaired by Intel and will provide a standard software programming interface for nonvolatile memory subsystems. The group says the interface will be used by operating system drivers to access NAND flash memory storage in the applications such as hard drive caching and solid-state drives.
