Over at the Intel Developer Forum in Beijing, Intel announced the future Montevina Centrino platform will become available in the first half of 2008. Montevina is the successor to Santa Rosa, a Centrino platform that will be introduced in May.

The Montevina platform will feature a 45nm mobile Core 2 Duo processor, based on the Penryn architecture. It will feature the Cantiga chipset, the Boaz LAN chip and Shiloh, a chip for wireless connectivity.

Another feature of Montevina is the Echo Peak module. Besides WiFi, this module will also add WiMAX support. The firm will also offer "Dana Point", which is a WiMAX-only card.

And the last new technology in Montevina will be Robson 2.0 - a tweaked version of the Robson cache memory technology to further improve performance.
