Santa Rosa systems will revolve around Intel's Merom processor -- the successor to the current Core Duo and Core Solo processor family -- now called Core 2 Duo. Intel's next-generation chipset for Santa Rosa is codenamed Crestline, and is based on Intel's 965 chipset family. Crestline will deliver dual integrated graphics capabilities or support for discrete graphics using the GMA X3000 graphics engine. DDR2 667MHz/533MHz will be the standard memory of choice and Crestline will support either 800MHz or 667MHz FSB configurations. Paired with Intel's ICH8M, Crestline will also support Intel's Robson NAND flash module technology that will be introduced when Santa Rosa launches..You can read more and view some photos at DailyTech.
