Intel Takes Wraps Off Santa Rosa Platform
Intel's soon-to-be released next-generation mobile platform features new core logic, new CPUs and a new socket format, plus the first products based on the company's Robson cache technology. (ExtremeTech)"Santa Rosa" is the latest iteration of Intels Centrino platform, and consists of core logic, networking and updated Merom CPUs, which will start arriving in laptop PCs in late spring. The new chip set is the mobile version of Intels G965 core logic, with enhancements added for improved power management, particularly of the graphics core.
The networking side has been updated to include 802.11n support, although final ratification of the latest wireless networking standard isnt expected until late in 2007.
