Short Take: Intel has application accelerator

Intel's newly announced Application Launch Accelerator dramatically shortens the time it takes for software applications to load from a hard disk drive. Intel says a system with Launch Accelerator can launch three Windows 95 applications--Word, Excel, and PowerPoint--in 3.7 seconds compared with 11.3 seconds for an identical system without the accelerator. Intel is working with several vendors to deliver this technology to PC users.
