Intel's embedded IA roadmap
Single digit TDP envelopes for all!

As if Intel needed any more reasons for people to like Yonah, the company just announced plans to build a 1.2GHz, 65nm Yonah processor with a 533MHz FSB and 2MB L2 cache.  But here's the kicker, the processor has a TDP envelope of 9W.  The new processor will sell under the name Intel Core Duo U2500.

Intel previously had a Pentium M Dothan SKU, the Pentium M LV 738, which had a TDP envelope of about 10W, but was a single-core processor.  Both the Pentium M LV 738 and the Core Duo U2500 are BGA processors, meaning they are soldered directly onto the motherboard.  These embedded processors are used for things like ultra portable tablets, UMPCs and Ethernet switches.  The Core Duo U2500 should be available immediately. 

Furthermore, Intel's roadmap reveals that 65nm Merom processors will also have Low Voltage variants.  At the Intel Developer Forum earlier this year Intel representatives announced that Merom would have more robust features when it comes to power management.  It certainly isn't hard to fathom that single digit TDP envelopes may become commonplace in the near future. Merom is expected to launch this August, although the Low Voltage variants of processors from Intel typically launch a few months after the main segments is announced.
