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

RE: Slow down a bit !

Intel and AMD need to play to win and ultimately reward their shareholders. Intel is clearly executing better and everyone reaps the benefits of their excellence.
Why would they slow down? Why would they artificially throttle their engineering department? What benefits would be achieved? Technology has always been a fast pace game of ideas, engineering, and execution. Plenty have failed in this ruthless marketplace. However, this creative destruction has greatly enriched the lives of humanity.
Consider how many scientific breakthroughs have been achieved and are attributable to Moore's law. Consider that everyone has or will have a bullhorn to voice there thoughts and opinions via blogs and video. This is all attributable to cheap and fast technology.
Consider how well Folding At Home work on a 486? Extrapolating this out, in another 10 years Penryn wouldn't be fit for use in a PDA, nor to run the newer and better distributed networking programs that have yet to been written.
Finally, don't forget that Intel has other pitiless adversaries including: IBM, Samsung, Nvidia, Freescale, et al.
