Intel scheduled a release of new processor which combined north and south bridge in the same chip for the industry market in late 2007, code named Tolapai, according to friends in the industrial market. Tolapai is designed for embedded system and industrial computer market, against its rival VIA C7 and AMD Geode.

 

Using 65nm manufacturing technology, Tolapa which combined traditional processor, north and south bridge into one single chip is packed in 1088-Ball FCBGA, and its size is only 3.75cm x 3.75cm. As a Pentium M based processor, it could able to be adopted into any IA-32 operation system without any change to drivers and applications.
