Recognized as the Santa Rosa platform, Centrino Pro technology will be built around the 64-bit dual-core Merom core, said the makers citing the chip giant's latest product roadmap. In the second quarter of 2007, Intel will launch its new Core 2 Duo (Merom) CPU lineup, which includes the T7300, T7500 and T7700 models, featuring Socket P connector, 800MHz FSB and 4MB L2 cache, as well as the T7100 with 2MB of L2 cache, the makers indicated.
