Merom mobile CPU will succeed the upcoming Yonah CPU in later half of 2006.
Yonah is planned for the end of 2005, and it’s a 65nm dual core mobile CPU,
although Intel is also planning a single core version. Merom will also be a dual
core CPU, built on 65nm but will be based on a new architecture, which the chip
giant is flagging as more advanced and efficient than the one used for
Banias/Dothan CPUs. Compared with previous Banias CPUs it’s expected that Merom
will end up twenty to thirty per cent faster per clock.

Ed’s Note : Yonah mobile CPU and Yonah DT are expected to be pretty
short lived as mobile Merom and desktop Conroe based on Merom architecture will
appear in later half of 2006. Merom and Conroe each has 4MB L2 cache and will be
paired up with Crestline chipsets.
