DigiTimes reports that both Intel's quad-core Kentsfield and AMD's K8L quad-core processor will arrive in the first quarter of next year. The Kentsfield will be a 65nm processor whereas AMD will still be using the 90nm process.
The two vendor’s competition in the quad-core arena is expected to kick off from the first quarter of next year, when Microsoft’s 64-bit Vista operating system (OS) should be available, the sources commented.

The launch of Intel’s 64-bit dual-core processor, the Conroe that will be included in its “Averill” platform for business desktops, will happen in September, following the June launch of AMD’s Socket AM2 CPU offering, the sources noted.
