Intel's latest roadmap which was send to OEMs for week 36 shows a new software applications which will make it easier to share stuff in a home network. This software, codenamed Dorrington, will be bundled with Napa-based notebooks. It will let people browse Intel's Viiv content directory service, stream personal content from it, and download info to the laptop.
The Yonah is still listed for the first and second quarter of 2006 and later that year Intel will introduce the Merom. The 65nm Merom will feature EM64T, Virtualization Technology, EIST and the anti-viral XD bit.
Don't forget that Intel will want to capitalise on its Celeron M notebook SKUs. In Q2 of 2006 it will introduce the 420, followed in the second half by the 410 and 420s. The 430 will use the Yonah 65 nanometre core, with a 533MHz front side bus and have 1MB of L2 cache. The 420s and 410s will be similar in structure, and Intel will also introduce a ULV version - the 423, with similar characteristics. All of these will use the XD bit as well.
In Q2 of next year, Intel will introduce the 945GMS and the 940GML chipsets to support its Yonah and Merom processors in the future.
In the second half of next year it introduces the Kirtland and the Loudon wireless kits for its CPUs.
