In the second quarter of next year Intel will release a faster family of Merom notebooks processors.
According to roadmaps shown to Intel OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), the T7700 will be introduced to coincide with the introduction of Santa Rosa, along with a dual core ultra low voltage, the U7500.

In the third quarter of next year, Intel will also change the socket for its Merom based Celerons from Socket M, to Socket P.
