Intel's "Santa Rosa" platform gets a "Penryn" refresh before "Montevina" arrives
Intel needs to call a plumber, because future roadmap details continue to leak from the company. Yesterday, we learned of new
45nm Xeon processors
based on Intel’s upcoming

Intel has four new
-based Core 2 Duo processors in the pipeline. Although Intel has not given the new processors model names, Intel reveals the clock speeds and cache configurations in the latest roadmap.
All four mobile Core 2 Duo processors make use of an 800MHz FSB, matching
-based models. Intel does not intend to move mobile processors to a 1066 MHz or
1333 MHz front-side
bus like its desktop counterparts.

The four new mobile Core 2 Duo processors range from 2.1 GHz to 2.6 GHz. Higher-end 2.6 GHz and 2.5 GHz
-based mobile Core 2 Duo processors feature 6MB of L2 cache. The entry-level 2.4 GHz and 2.1 GHz have 3MB of L2 cache, half of the higher-end models. Intel plans to provide

Additionally, Intel plans a
refresh of its mobile Core 2 Extreme processor. The
mobile Core 2 Extreme processor
clocks in at 2.8 GHz on an 800 MHz front-side bus. Cache-size remains the same as the other

Your argument is only partially true.. I am assuming intel marketing execs take a whole bunch of this market data, replacement trends, and competetive space in different segments etc into consideration wehn they decide on when/howmuch to release the products... it is not 100% fool proof or correct, but it is not exactly blind assumptions either...
And also, all PC users do not replace at the same time.. some might have had older computers that didnt replace with the core2's last year and were waiting initially, and might be considering a replace now.. many of such may go for penryn products during christmas.. and for those who got recent core2's, they go for penryn plus next year or nehalem shortly after that..
So it's all about keeping customers on a steady diet of Intel.. and lead them up the tech ramp gradually... well that's my 2 cents..
