2005-01-19 Intel Alviso Chipset in Napa platform based on Grantsdale, but for notebooks succeeding Montara and Odem from the Centrino line. Likely to be available in several versions with (-GM) and without graphics. Earlier planned for 04-H2. G-version said to include the GMA900 graphics core.
Alviso is part of the Sonoma generation of the Centrino platform.
Napa64 is likely to be a Alviso with support for Merom.
2005-Q2 Intel Tejas Successor to Prescott likely to be called Pentium V built on a 90 nm process, supporting IA-32e, DDR-II and PCI Express. Runs cooler and quiter than current chips. Uses a new LGA775 socket, with a 1066 MHz bus and starts at around 4.5 GHz, moving to around 9 before it is canceled. To include the 8 new "Tejas New Instructions" aka Azalia (Azalea), for improved audio multistreaming, speech recognition, Dolby Digital etc. Also includes "Extended Enhanced HyperThreading"...
Uses dual channel DDR-II DRAM at 533 MHz and the Alderwood and Grantsdale chipsets.
Will later be built in a 65 nm process, with a size of 80-100 mm2. The 65 nm version will get 2 MB of L2 cache on chip.
Earlier listed for a 04-Q4 launch, but recent news claim Prescott delays have moved the launch into 2005.
Tejas is canned in favor of Merom / Conroe.
2006-01-05 Intel Yonah Mobile chip, succeeding Dothan in the power optimized notebook segment including HyperThreading and Vanderpool. Will use the Alviso-GM chipset. Includes one (Yonah1 - Core Solo) or two (Yonah2 - Core Duo) Dothan cores with one shared 2MB cache. The cache is dynamically divided between the cores. Runs on a 667 MHz bus, except for the ULV version which uses 533 MHz. Earlier listed as a 90nm chip in 04-H2.
Yonah (sometimes referred to as Jonah) is part of the Napa Centrino platform, succeeding Sonoma.
Named X50: $637, X40: $423, X30: $294, and X20: $241, while X48 and X39 will be low voltage versions.
There will also be a low-end Yonah called 756, below X20, with only one core running at 1.67 GHz and 2MB of cache.
Yonah will be used in future Macs.
Newer info names the chips T2600, T2500, T2400 and T2300 for normal chips, L2400 and L2300 for Low Voltage and U1400 and U1300 for Ultra Low Voltage. Clocked from 1.06 to 2.16 GHz.
2006-07-27 Intel Merom Mobile processor succeeding Prescott-M and Yonah built on a 65 nm process. Accompanied by the Crestine chipset. Recent rumours claim that Merom is a major new core design with multiple cores and, depending on version, 2-4 MB of cache, which will also form the base for the next desktop chip, Conroe. Said to consume about 45W.
Earlier said to launch in 05-H2 or 2007, prototype chips has been out since May of 2006.
Merom is part of the Santa Rosa Centrino platform, succeeding Napa. Said to be used in future Macs.
Bus speed to go up to 800 MHz in 2007-H1.
Will be named T7600, the T7400, the T7200 and T5600.
2006-H2 Intel 965GM Mobile chipset for Merom, succeeding Alviso / Calistoga.
Have earlier been called Crestine. Will include DirectX10 graphics capabilities in the Graphics Media Accelerator 3000 core (probably by microcode update). Part of the Averill platform.
2006 Intel Gilo Mobile processor, succeeding Merom. Built in a 65 nm process.
