As we continue our exploration, we encounter a diverse array of code names. Banias, named after a city near Mt. Hermon in the Golan Heights, was the codename for the Pentium M processor developed in Israel. Willamette, a valley between Eugene and Portland with a river of the same name, was the birthplace of Intel’s first Pentium 4 processor. Katmai, a volcano on the Alaska Peninsula, lent its name to the Pentium III line.
Yamhill, taken from a river in the Willamette Valley, referred to a 64-bit extension to the x86 instruction set. Santa Rosa, a mid-sized city in California, became the successor to the Centrino line. Montevina, the first post-Prohibition winery in Amador County, California, succeeded Santa Rosa.
