Slated for an April '07 launch, the Dailytech have acquired some details of Intel's upcoming Socket P processors for their next-gen mobile platform "Santa Rosa".



DailyTech has come across a roadmap outlining Intel's upcoming Socket P mobile processor socket. "Socket P" will part of Intel's next generation Santa Rosa mobile platform and will continue to be a pin-grid array based socket unlike the land-grid array based desktop processors. There will be no backwards compatibility with "Socket P," as it will be keyed differently than the current Socket M. Socket P processors will have pins A1 and A2 removed unlike pins A1 and B1 of current Socket M processors. Sacrificial "Corner Balls" will also be introduced with Socket P for greater differentiation with Socket M processors.
