Intel will launch five Penryn 45nm notebook processors along with its Santa Rosa Refresh platform in the first quarter of 2008.

According to DigiTimes, these will be followed by another six for Montevina mid-way through next year.

The plan is that Intel will launch five Penryn processors for Santa Rosa Refresh supporting a FSB of 800MHz. They will have frequencies of 2.8GHz, 2.6GHz, 2.5GHz, 2.4GHz and 2.1GHz. The L2 cache will be 6MB for the 2.8-2.5GHz versions and 3MB for 2.4-2.1GHz versions.

There will be three processors released with Montevina in the second quarter with 35W power consumption, 1066MHz FSB, 6MB L2 cache and core frequencies of 3.06GHz, 2.8GHz and 2.53GHz.

The other three 45nm processors will target the mid-range market and feature 25W power consumption, 1066MHz FSB, 3MB L2 cache and core frequencies of 2.53GHz, 2.4GHz and 2.13GHz.

Intel wants Penryn processors to make up half of its total notebook CPU shipments in the second quarter of 2008. Montevina is targeted at 18 percent and Santa Rosa Refresh 35 per cent.

Intel is not confirming DigiTime's figures.
