Intel Lynnfield to boost quad-core adoption

Posted on Tuesday, April 07 2009 @ 02:15:02 CEST by

Only 10 percent of all chips sold by Intel are quad-cores today, but according to information seen by FUD Zilla the number is expected to rise after the introduction of the Lynnfield processor. Cheaper quad-core Nehalem processors should slightly boost quad-core adoption to 12 percent of total shipments this quarter, while in the fourth quarter this should be around 15 percent.
Q4 2009 will slightly change the situation as up to 20 percent of CPUs might be quad-core based but there is a catch with this number. According to Intel 20+ percent of market will be shared by Core i7, Core 2 Quad 45nm and mainstream Nehalem that includes both Lynnfield quad-cores and Clarkdale dual-cores, so the actual 20+ percent number won’t be realistic.

In Q4 2009 we can only suggest that some 15+ percent of Intel’s total shipments will be quad-cores. Just to put things into perspective in the same quarter Pentium dual-core E5000 and E6000 45nm series will hold approximately 32 percent of the total Consumer based shipments.
