google "intel santa rosa"
So... are you saying Santa Rosa is they're next chip after Merom? When does Penryn come into play? Is Santa Rosa Quad Core?

I'm not buying a MBP until they're Quad Core.

Fab D1D in Hillsboro, Oregon, will be 45-nanometerized first in order to be ready for mass manufacturing of final 45 nm products in the second half of 2007. This generation is still going to be based on the processor design that Merom is going to introduce in mid 2006, but due to several modifications in addition to the die shrink it will be called Penryn. According to our information, there won't be many chances in comparison to Merom. The cache size, however, will be increased by 50%, resulting in cache sizes of 3 MB and 6 MB L2 cache for the dual core processor versions.

linky :eek: :eek:

i know its old news but its still merom base :eek:

yikes, I think thats asking for a lot. 4 cores, 4 gb or ram, what are you looking to do on this beast?

I am going for the first merom 17incher in august, after that, I'll give it a year at least before I think of upgrading/selling that mbp.

and from what I hear, santa rosa will allow for almost instant boot-up/down. No more sleep function, just on and off, and it remembers everything on your desktop after you turn it on again. pretty cool

What do you need a quad-core for?
Well, I don't need any computer right now. That's why i'm able to wait for Quad Core. I only get a new computer every 3 years or so, so I want it to last.

I got my G4 Tower in the summer of 2004, so the summer/fall of 07 would be perfect, if they're out by then.

I'm not very familiar with the Intel Roadmap. When will there be a Quad Core mobile chip?
