Intel's Q2'07 Core 2 Duo roadmap
Intel's Merom die shot
Intel adds another socket to the lineup, 800MHz FSB notebook processors and much more
Intel just announced its plans through Q2'07 for mobile platforms. The new roadmap includes many details about the upcoming 65nm
processor, also called Core 2 Duo for notebooks.
, the successor to
, will come in two main waves, or "refreshes."
The first refresh, expected this August, will primarily be used for the
Centrino platform already available. The second refresh of
is slated for the
Centrino -- the eventual successor of the
Centrino platform. AMD is also using the
code name, but for a completely unrelated Opteron Socket F processor
due this July
Intel first announced details of
at the Intel Developer Forum this past March. Intel's roadmaps do not confirm the use of
NAND technology, although it was outlined during the forum earlier this year.
The initial batch of 65nm
processors, part of the Core 2 Duo family, will run on a 667MHz front side bus. The second batch will use an 800MHz front side bus and another new socket design: Socket P. At the heart of this Santa Rosa platform is the
series core logics.
is essentially the same as Intel's 965 chipset, but specifically tailored for notebooks and low power applications. Like the 945 chipsets shipping in Napa platforms,
will have a "GM" and "PM" component; one for integrated graphics and one without, respectively.
The Centrino platform will get a new WiFi chip to replace the 3945ABG chipset used in
platforms today. The chip, dubbed
for now, will integrated 802.11a, 802.11g and 802.11n in the final production. The 802.11n commission is still
working its way through final draft specifications
, but by the time
is ready in 2007, the finalized specification should not be a problem.
A ship date has not been set for the new
CPUs yet, but we do know the pricing slated for launch. Intel has added a fifth bin CPU to the lineup since
our last roadmap
seekers the ability to snag the Core 2 Duo processor for under $210.

Intel partners have confirmed to us that the
processors will require a BIOS update for the notebook when upgrading from a Core Duo
system. Furthermore, Intel will still launch a Core Duo (
) CPU this June 25th with a 2.33GHz clock. Notebook manufacturers will continue to use Core Duo processors in notebooks even after Core 2 Duo's introduction.
Intel's projections claim that by December of 2006
will account for 35% of all Intel shipped mobile CPUs, and that dual core processors will account for 90% of all notebook CPUs.

"P" stands for "Plenty" of pins ;)
I don't know really, but it is reminding me of "Socket T". Otherwise called LGA775... So I'd guess it is a LGA package?

They've used letters for a while now. It has no relationship with LGA.
e.g. Socket W (423), Socket N (478), Socket F (603)
