Intel says that by the second quarter of next year, 45nm will be good for almost 50 percent of its total 2-way server processor shipments. This includes the quad-core Harpertown and dual-core Wolfdale-DP 45nm processors:
At Harpertown's launch in fourth quarter of 2007, 45nm processors will account for around 11% of the total 2-way server processor shipments. The percentage will increase to around 29% in first quarter 2008 when Wolfdale-DP joins the market. In second quarter of 2008, the percentage will rise to around 45% with Wolfdale-DP taking around 8% and Harpertown around 37%. 65nm processors (Clovertown and Woodcrest) will account for the remaining 55% of shipments for the quarter, the sources said.
With Intel's server market share at approximately 80%, Intel's biggest competitor in 2008 might be itself, noted the sources.
