    Intel released the successor to the Centrino chipset. It is called Sonoma and is based on the i915 desktop chipset with features like:
    • Intel Graphics Media Processor 900
    • 533FSB with DDR2 (up to 2GB), and PCI-E support
    • High Definition Audio
    • SATA
    • Intel WiFi Support
    • Power Optimized FSB

    Intel has kept the brand "Centrino" - Notebooks running 533 Mhz FSB use Sonoma, 400 FSB means the "old" Centrino.

    Also new is support for DDR2 and PCI-Express.

    A few sites already have reviews up:
