Intel's Road Map
Tuesday August 23, 2005

Intel CEO Paul Otellini told attendees of the Fall Intel Developer Forum that three new chips scheduled for the second half of 2006 are to use a new architecture that will succeed Netburst, currently used by its Pentium 4 and Xeon CPUs. Otellini also said that the company is working to develop powerful chips that consume only a half watt of power by the end of the decade. Otellini further stated that the company's new architecture for PC and server chips will combine the power-saving focus of the Banias architecture used to build the Pentium M notebook processor with the performance provided by Netburst.

The chips, due in the second half of 2006, are code-named Merom, Conroe and Woodcrest. Designed for notebooks, desktops and servers, respectively, they will cut the typical power consumption of notebooks to about 5 watts, desktops to 65 watts and servers to 80 watts. Otellini confirmed that the chips will be 64-bit capable and come with Intel's virtualization technology, the LaGrande security technology and the company's Active Management Technology.

Notebooks:
Yonah - notebook chip. 1st half of 2006.
Merom - notebook chip coming in the second half of 2006. 5 watts (vs 22 in today's chips)

Desktops:
Presler - Desktop chip based on Pentium 4 line. 1st half of 2006.
Conroe - Desktop counterpart to Merom. Late 2006. up to 65 watts. (vs 95)

Servers:
Paxville - late 2005. Dual core.
Woodcrest - Server processor, up to 80 watts. (vs 110)

5 watts for notebook chips. That's awesome! Battery life is going to be awesome if they can get lower power consumption with the screens.

What chip do you think Apple will put in the Mac mini? The Conroe or Merom?

I still think Apple should have gone with AMD. Think different!

I guess depends on which one costs less. Price is going to be a major factor since the Mac mini is Apple's least expensive computer. I'd imagine the thermal properties of the chip are going to be a another factor. That would have you think Yonah or Merom since they are designed for laptops.
