don't know about newegg...they might have messed up.
the pictures of both products say #616P2 and QuieTrack.
Asus's website: (note - some links at Asus website are incorrect):

if you compare the feature list, you see the P2 lists stuff not listed for the P1: specifically the AFFM
see this link:

<by the way this page has a link to a CDRLabs review, and also the
QuieTrack is composed of: AFFM, DDSSII.
although the P1 feature page doesn't mention DDSSII, i'm sure it has it. DDSSII is not all that new. was on older Asus drives too.
according to Ian's review (linked there) QuieTrack also consists of something called Speed Read. however i found no mention of that on the QuieTrack page.
