Intel just announced its plans through Q2'07 for mobile platforms. The new roadmap includes many details about the upcoming 65nm Merom processor, also called Core 2 Duo for notebooks. Merom, the successor to Yonah, will come in two main waves, or "refreshes."More details over here.
The first refresh, expected this August, will primarily be used for the Napa Centrino platform already available. The second refresh of Merom is slated for the Q2'07 launch of Santa Rosa Centrino -- the eventual successor of the Napa Centrino platform. AMD is also using the Santa Rosa code name, but for a completely unrelated Opteron Socket F processor due this July. Intel first announced details of Santa Rosa at the Intel Developer Forum this past March. Intel's roadmaps do not confirm the use of Robson NAND technology, although it was outlined during the forum earlier this year.
