Intel plans six 45nm chips for Montevina platform
Just over a month ago, we heard rumors about Intel prepping five 45nm mobile processors for the "Santa Rosa Refresh" platform in the first quarter of 2008. The folks at DigiTimes now have some information about the chips Intel plans to launch for Montevina, the next platform on its roadmap.
We can expect the chipmaker to introduce six 45nm mobile chips in the second quarter together with the Montevina platform, if DigiTimes is to be believed. The site says three of the chips will have 35W thermal envelopes and clock speeds of 2.53GHz, 2.8GHz, and 3.06GHz, all with 6MB of L2 cache and 1066MHz front-side bus speeds. The other three chips will be rated for 25W and will reportedly be aimed at the mid-range market. Clock speeds for those chips will be 2.13GHz, 2.4GHz, and 2.53GHz, each with only 3MB of cache. Those models will have the same 1066MHz FSB as their speedier siblings, however.
