Intel Core Duo 2
Intel reveals roadmap details, aggressive architecture refresh strategy. Well, Intel is definitely working hard, their update to the first Intel Core Duo is coming faster. Here is the new schedule for the new Intel Core Duo 2 family:
* Server chip (codenamed Woodcrest) ships June.
* Desktop (codenamed Conroe). July.
* Mobile (Merom). August.
Of course, now even more confusing is when Apple will ship their hardware based on these dates, so here’s the current prediction:
* Merom-based Macbooki to be announced at the August Apple Worldwide Developers Conference
* PowerMac replacement will depend on whether the Woodcrest or Conroe will be used and could be as early as June (if Woodcrest is used)
