Intel has removed 45nm Havendale from their roadmap officially and replaced it with 32nm Clarkdale. Both Clarkdale and Havendale architectures are pretty similiar – a dual core processor with Integrated Graphics. Most likely, Intel is confident that their 32nm process technology is on target to enter mass production by Q1 2010 therefore a 45nm based processor will no longer be needed.

Most likely, Intel is confident that their 32nm process technology is on target to enter mass production by Q1 2010 therefore a 45nm based processor will no longer be needed. This allows TDP to be reduced significantly since a 45nm CPU+IGP will churn out considerably amount of heat.

However, a 32nm CPU+IGP poses too much a challenge to get it out on time therefore Intel opts for Multi-Chip Package (MCP) for Clarkdale instead. The MCP contains a 32nm Westmere CPU and a 45nm IGP.
