No more Montevina, but what about Nehalem?

    So now that Montevina is technically out and Apple has made the move to NVDIA chipsets, does that mean we won't see Nehalem anymore? or is that the next processor and does not have to do anything with chipsets?

    Nahelem is the next processor, meaning as long as NVIDIA makes a chipset for it (or Apple switches back to intel), we'll see a Nahelem MBP around March/April-ish of next year.

    Clarksfield(Quad core mobile nehalem platform) is expected during Q3 2009. So most probably we will see next update around the same time next year. Dual core auburndale with built in gfx is expected only during Jan 2010. So we may not see macbook update until then(unless they bump up clockspeed).

    Basically it's a crippled re-design with a slight GPU speed bump :D

    I am very worried about the heat of the new MBP. Its thinner and it has an nVidia chipset. Those nForce chips get much hotter than Intels in the desktop computers:confused:

    All Apple notebooks run VERY hot.

    Prepare to be disappointed.

    Well don't we get a slight performance boost due to the faster bus speeds...or am I wrong.

    Well a tad increase on the faster models. For example, on the low-end MB, expect a decrease in performance.

    The big increase should be with Nehalem when Intel will finally rid of the FSB once and for all.

    Aluminium has a lower melting point. I'd expect new users to be pround owners of blobs of former MB/MBP's :D
