Intel Kentsfield quad-core coming in January 2007

Posted on Thursday, March 23 2006 @ 16:38:09 CET by

New roadmaps from Intel show the chip giant will introduce its Kentsfield desktop processor in the same month that Microsoft will ship Windows Vista - January 2007.
And Intel will position the Kentsfield quad as both a "Viiv" chip and a regular desktop chip too. It is also regarded inside Intel as a good chip for current and future games.

Kentsfield will be Intel's replacement for the Conroe Extreme Edition, now expected to be released in the third quarter of this year. It has also fleshed out the kind of PC you'll need for Viiv versions 1.5 and 1.6 - which include Cointreau Extreme Edition, an NCQ S-ATA drive, and Intel high def audio 5.1 as a minimum. It reckons Viiv 1.5 and 1.6 will also work OK with Cointreau E6000 and E4000 chips, as well as Pentium D 900s and 800s. Recommended chipsets include the 975X with ICH7DH or P965 Express chipsets with ICH8DH
