The Inq saw Intel's processor roadmaps and reports the Merom processor has appeared on the map. This processing will be launched in the second half of this year.
Merom will feature a 667MHz FSB, Virtualization Technology, Enhanced Intel Speedstep Technology (EIST), 64-bit and XD. It will use the Socket M.
It also appears that Intel will continue its practice of delivering cut down versions of its notebook chips, and in particular releasing a Celeron M chip based on the Yonah designs in the second quarter of this year. These chips will only be offered in a PGA package, however.
The chips to be launched will be the 430 and the 420, but Intel will also introduce a 423 Celeron M which is an ultra low voltage chip.
The chipset giant also plans a T2700 Yonah in the second half of this year along with the dual-core ultra low voltage U2500 processor.
