Intel's Socket M may not support Santa Rosa

Posted on Saturday, July 01 2006 @ 00:03:38 CEST by


At the end of August we can expect the new Merom mobile processors from Intel. HKEPC now comes with some news about the Santa Rosa platform:
In the next Santa Rosa platform, which is a replacement of Napa Refresh, Crestline northbridge is introduced together with ICH8M. At that time, Merom will fully support 800MHz FSB but Socket M has been made supported. The replacement to Socket M would be Socket P, also in 478 pin but not compatible with Socket M processor. Without technical improvement, such change is just a marketing decision to make Yonah to fall out of use in Santa Rosa platform. Manufacturers are complained about the change that would make money loss by increased pressure on storage. They are now urging Intel to cancel the decision, making Socket M be available in Santa Rosa platform.
