Specifics have surfaced in relation to Intel's next-gen mobile platform. Where Santa Rosa made up the Centrino platform, Montevina will officially become Centrino 2.
Set to make its debut in June this year, Intel's Centrino 2 & Centrino 2 vPro will include support for their new Penryn-based mobile processors running on a 1066MHz FSB along with many more updated features and expansion options over its predecessor.
Dailytech have the complete rundown on Centrino 2's characteristics.
You could set your clock to Intel's mobile platform roadmap. For the last three years, the company announced its new processor lineup in January, followed by a chipset and processor refresh in June. June is always a critical month for notebook manufacturers, as the impending school semester spurs the largest volume orders on the year.
This year Intel announced its first generation 45 nanometer desktop, mobile and server processors. New roadmaps issued to notebook partners claim the company will replace its Santa Rosa Centrino platform with the Montevina Centrino 2 platform this June.
