Intel Santa Rosa in Q2 2007, Montevina in Q2 2008

Posted on Friday, Feb 02 2007 @ 01:05 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Intel Santa Rosa platform will arrive in the second quarter of this year, and in the second quarter of 2008 we can expect the successor, which is called Montevina Professional Platform. This platform uses the mobile Penryn processor, the Cantiga chipset and a new improved ICH9M southbridge.
It will also come with "Boaz" GbE digital office but there's no sign of Jachin from the Great Marchitect of the Chip Universe.

Penryn, as we pointed out in another story elsewhere today, has a release date of Q1 2008. The Cantiga chipsets wil come in GM and PM varieties, succeeding the GM965 and the PM965. While Robson 1GB and Robson 512MB are slated for the second quarter of this year, there will be a Robson 2.0 in Q2 of next year as well.

Intel has priced up the notebook CPUs for release in May with the T7700 (2.40GHz) costing $529, the T7500 (2.20GHz) $315, the T7300 (2GHz) $241 and the T7100 (1.8GHz) $209. All but the last of these have 4MB of cache and use 800MHz system buses.
