At the Intel Developer Forum in Taiwan, Intel said it will finish the design of the 45nm Penryn processor in the first quarter of 2007. The launch is slated for the second half of 2007.
Codenamed Penryn and generally known as a 45nm derivative from the current Intel Core microarchitecture, Intel's first 45nm project is targeted to result in notebook, desktop and server CPUs, the company said without providing additional details about the processors.

Corporate vice president and general manager of mobile platforms group Mooly Iden also pointed out that Intel will not require Robson technology to be a must for notebooks based on the upcoming Santa Rosa platform, leaving it as an option for notebook vendors. However, according to Iden, the company believes that Robson will quickly increase in popularity to become pervasive in notebooks in 2-3 years.
