Intel introduces Santa Rosa processor technology and roadmap for mobile devices
Intel Corporation executives said that personalization and content are key drivers behind increased demand for notebook PCs and mobile Internet devices (MIDs).

The company discussed its next generation Centrino processor technology "Santa Rosa", due in May 2007. The Santa Rosa processor technology is comprised of an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset family, Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Network Connection, Intel 82566MM and 82566MC Gigabit Network Connection, and optional Intel Turbo memory. Intel Turbo Memory decreases resume time from notebook hibernation, thus increasing productivity and reducing system power consumption.

In the first half of 2008, Santa Rosa will be refreshed with Intel's 45nm Hi-k dual core mobile processor, codenamed "Penryn." Later in 2008, the company will deliver the "Montevina" processor technology, also with Penryn, for greater performance and energy efficiency. With approximately 40 percent smaller components, Montevina will be ideal for mini- and sub-notebooks, and will include integrated hardware decode for high-definition video.

Intel will make its integrated Wi-Fi/WiMAX solution available as an option with Montevina-based notebooks.

Also introduced was the Intel Ultra Mobile platform 2007 (formerly codenamed "McCaslin") for MIDs and UMPCs. Said systems will be available over the summer from Aigo, Asus, Fujitsu, Haier, HTC and Samsung. The Intel Ultra Mobile platform 2007 is based on the Intel processor A100 and A110, the Intel 945GU Express Chipset and the Intel ICH7U I/O Controller Hub.

The HTC Shift (pictured) combines Windows Vista with an innovative QWERTY-based keyboard design and 3G connectivity. The HTC Shift comes packed with tri-band UMTS/HSDPA, quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi.

There are plans for the company to deliver its next-generation platform for MIDs and UMPCs (codenamed "Menlow") in the first half of 2008. The first working Menlow-based prototype will be based on a new 45nm Hi-k low power microarchitecture-based processor, codenamed "Silverthorne," and next-generation chipset, codenamed "Poulsbo."
