IDF Fall '04 Intel fleshed out its Centrino mobile CPU roadmap today, with details of the Sonoma platform, and a promised delivery date of Q105. The company also announced its next-generation mobile platform, codenamed Napa.

In his keynote, Anand Chandrasekher, general manager of Intel’s Mobile Platforms Group, said that Sonoma is designed to provide the basis for mobile entertainment system. He ran a demo on the platform, which he touts as the ideal technology for college students - it could also include a TV tuner, and would work with a remote control.

As well as incorporating the Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG network connection Sonoma includes a new Intel Pentium M processor sporting a 533MHz front-side bus and a chipset code-named Alviso.

After Sonoma comes Napa. Napa will include a dual core processor dubbed "Yonah". This is the first mobile-optimised dual core CPU, based on Intel's new 65nm process. Napa will include the Calistoga graphics chipset, and gets its connectivity from Golan, Intel's provocatively-dubbed next-gen wireless technology. Napa is "totally optimised for mobility from the ground up, and will provide performance on-demand," Chandrasekher said. ®
