Intel's next-gen Centrino platform, Sonoma, will be launched at a January 19 event at the San Francisco Ferry Building.
This new Centrino platform from Intel will incorporate a new Pentium M processor, a new wireless chip and a new chip set of which Intel claims that the graphics performance will be doubled over the current generation.
At the heart of the system will be a new generation of Intel's Pentium M processor, code-named Dothan, which will have slightly faster clock speeds ranging up to 2.13 GHz, and as much as 2MB of on-chip memory. The fastest of these processors, called the Pentium M 770, will be priced in the same range as Intel's current top-of-the-line 2.1-GHz Pentium M 765, said sources familiar with Intel's plans.
All told, Intel plans to launch five versions of Pentium M, as well as new low-voltage and ultralow-voltage processors at the event, said Barbara Grimes, an Intel spokeswoman
