M5 Servotronic steering

What the heck is servotronic steering? I noticed a norwegian 540-6 site where the dude went NUTS on his 540 and decked it out with a 10+pounds of boost care of ESS, custom bodykit, custom style 67 wheels, and some crazy suspension.......which brings me to the servotronic steering from a 2000 M5 he installed. Why is it better? What does it look like? What does it do?

Someone enlighten me here.

ALEV8- Jet Black 2/99 540-6 sport, M5 sways, M5 grills, xenon AEs, M5 wheels/Potenza SO3s, stealth-mount V1, M side mirrors, custom Magnaflow exhaust, TEC cupholder!!!

Borrowed from BMW world:

M Servotronic power assist. Compared to the engine-speed-sensitive variable power assist of 5 Series models, the M5 employs Servotronic, which varies power assist according to vehicle speed. BMW M has calibrated the Servotronic system for extra-firm road feel
