2004-05-10 Intel Dothan 90 nm successor to Banias, and the Centrino / Pentium M line, which will have a 400 MHz bus (533 in 05-Q1) and 2MB of cache. Will be called 735, 745 and 755 for 1.7 to 2.0 GHz processors costing $294, $423 and $637.
Slower (715 and 725) versions launch in Q3, and faster (760, 770: 533 MHz bus, up to 2.13 GHz) in Q4. Consumes 21W in performance mode. Earlier meant to launch in 03-Q3.
2004-06-21 Intel Grantsdale 910/915 Desktop chipset for Prescott and Tejas (the Socket T or LGA775 processors). Supports DDR-II SDRAM (400/533) and the ICH6 south bridge. Graphics is enhanced with DX9 and DVI support, dual displays, faster graphics access etc and is called "Graphics Media Accelerator 900" (or GMA900), formerly known as "Intel Extreme Graphics 3". Will be launched as
- 915P ($37)
- 910PL: "light" (05-Q1: $23)
- 915G: added graphics ($41)
- 915GV: value graphics (Q3, $37)
- 910GL: value graphics "light" (05-Q1: $27)
2004-06-21 Intel ICH6 South bridge including four PCI Express x1 ports, and eight USB 2.0 ports. The ICH6-R (+$3) will support four S-ATA ports, while the normal ICH6 only includes two. There will also be ICH6-W (+$5) and -RW (+$7) versions with wireless capabilities and a ICH6-M for Mobile systems. Uses the new DMI (Direct Media Interface) to connect to the North Bridges.
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.
