Some news about Intel's new desktop processor roadmap has been posted at The Inquirer. One of the changes is that Intel will split its business platform in two parts: "Professional Business Platform" and "Fundamental Business Platform".

The 945GZ Express chipset appeared on the roadmaps and by the second quarter of 2006 w'll start seeing Pentium Extreme Edition and 900 series with Broadwater CS series, as well as mainstream processors using the 600, 800 and 900 sequence.

By the first quarter of next year Intel plans to release the 65nm Presler, it will be named the 900 series and will include the 920, 930, 940 and 950. All of them will coexist for a while with the 90nm 820, 830 and 840 series. All of them will support Vanderpool, Intel's virtualization technology.

Another change is that the top end 6xx series will by migrated to mainstream by Q1 2006.

Price cuts for Intel's desktop processors will follow in mid August, with significant price drops of the 620, 640, 650, 660 and 670 processor. The company also prepares the launch of the 672 (3.7GHz) at $600 and the 662 (3.6GHz) at $400. The 3.2GHz Celeron LGA 775 will be launched later this month for $125 and price cuts for the Intel Celeron line will follow in late July.
