Intel “Santa Rosa” Slated For March 2007

Intel’s successor of the current mobile “Napa” platform is developed under the code name “Santa Rosa.” Santa Rosa will be compatible with the recently launched Core Duo chip as well as the next-generation “Merom” processor and a chipset called “Crestine.” Crestline will be base on a 800 MHz FSB and integrate “Kedron,” apparently Intel’s codename for a new WLAN controller, which supports the upcoming 802.11n Wi-FI standard and apparently integrate the ICH8-M Southbridge. The platform is likely to be introduced in March of 2007, about half a year after Intel will release its Merom processor, and stay around for the introduction of Merom’s 45 nm shrink, code-named “Penryn,” which should be available sometime in 2008.
