Intel is set to significantly shrink down their Montevina SFF platform comprises of Penryn SFF processor, Cantiga GS chipset and ICH9M SFF Enhanced in Q3 2008. Intel will be making a special package for Penryn SFF processor that is only around 40% the size of a mobile Penryn. The total package area for Montevina SFF is only 1415mm2, a 58% reduction in size compared to the Montevina (Penry+Cantiga PM/GM+ICH9M) at 3342mm2 and 52% reduction compared to Napa Refresh SFF (Merom+Calistoga GMS+ICH7M) at 2915mm2. We can expect even smaller form factor designs coming next year.
