Intel revealed on Friday that it will launch a desktop processor codenamed Conroe for the end of next year. Conroe will be the successor to Intel's Presler, which will become Intel's first 65nm dual-core desktop processor in early 2006.

Presler is likely to show major improvements on power consumption and Conroe is believed to bring a new processor architecture, totally different from the current NetBurst technology that has been introduced with the first Pentium 4 processor in 2000.

Intel's CEO also announced plans for a notebook chip called Merom, which succeed Yonah and as well named a processor called Woodcrest which will be targeted at workstations and entry-level servers.
