Intel says the first quad-core desktop processor, the Kentsfield, will be released in the first quarter of 2007.
For the desktop segment, Intel indicated that Kentsfield will be the first quad-core processor and will be released in Q1 of 2007 after Conroe. During mid-year 2006, Intel will introduce its Bridge Creek platform but it did not indicate whether or not it will be Kentsfield ready. Recently, AMD also indicated that it will be introducing quad-core processors in 2007 for the server segment, but did not talk about the desktop space. According to Intel slides, Kentsfield will be focused on immediately after Conroe.
The Tigerton, Intel's quad-core MP processor, will be also released in early 2007. Read on over at Daily Tech.
