Internal Intel documents reveal that SSE4 is on the way and will be here with Conroe

Several internal memos and roadmaps from Intel confirmed what many of us already suspected: Intel's Conroe (and Merom) will feature SSE4.  The next generation SSE instructions were listed as part of the the platforms "Significant Video Enhancements" built into the upcoming Intel platforms.  

Among the other video enhancements listed included Clear Video Technology (CVT) -- Intel's attempted answer to ATI Avivo -- and UDI support.  Both of these technologies seem dependant on the 965 core logic and not necessarily the CPU.  Other Intel corporate roadmaps have defined CVT as:

Intel Clear Video Technology supporting advanced decoding, post-processing capabilities and enhanced 3D

The Conroe platform and most of its features have not been disclosed yet.  Intel is expected to announce the Conroe architecture name at the Intel Developer Forum on March 7th.

Q3-4 2006 was the last I heard on that front. I'm waiting for a Merom-based MacBook so I'm still relatively hopeful that this will arrive before the end of the year, hopefully not long after summer when the savings account should be looking good.

Merom is delayed

Check Google News for Intel+Conroe Intel+Woodcrest Intel+Merom

Intel is pushing to get Conroe out the door first, as early in Q3 as possible.

The downside is that Merom won't arrive until Q4 or possibly even Q1 2007. Therefore, no MacBook 64 for you, kelmon.
