Montevina is officially due to launch at some point in H1 2008, though at the last Intel Developer Forum, a senior executive let slip that it will debut in May. Montevina will incorporate the 'Cantiga' chipset, with an updated LAN chip, 'Boaz', and 'Echo Peak' and 'Shiloh' providing wireless connectivity. Echo Peak combines Wi-Fi and WiMAX. 'Dana Point' is Intel's planned WiMAX-only module for notebooks. Shiloh, by the way, is an 802.11n-only module.

Cantiga's integrated graphics will support both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc "natively" - in other words, it'll support HDMI output and HDCP anti-rip technology.

The processor details confirm a recent report that Intel is to revise its mobile CPU naming system.
