The next big mobile core is called Merom and it is not just a tweaked and re-tweaked Banias, it is a completely new core. Merom is expected to have large changes to it to make it top the last core by 20-30% clock for clock. There will be a desktop version of this chip known as Conroe with all the features one would expect out of a desktop chip due out in late 2006. It should be on the same bus as Merom.
