Intel quad-core Kentsfield pulled into Q4 2006

Posted on Tuesday, August 15 2006 @ 19:34:43 CEST by

Intel said the quad-core Kentsfield processor will now be launched in the fourth quarter of this year, it will be numbered in the X6800 sequence.
WHILE AVERILL PROFESSIONAL and Fundamental are still slated for a Q3 release, Intel has notified its partners that it will introduce Weybridge Professional in the second quarter of next year That's emerged from roadmaps seen by the INQ, which also reflect Intel's continuing push of quad core Kentsfield, pulled in for an earlier launch date.

Intel has also started using superlatives to describe its desktop processors. For example, Intel Pro is "best", the Pentium D 900 sequence is better, the Pentium D 8000 is good, while the Pentium 4 500 sequence is entry. Yeah, we know the last isn't a superlative, but you get Intel's drift.

The introduction of "Bearlake" chipsets in the second quarter of 2007 means several flavours of boards using NCQ S-ATA drives supporting Microsoft Visa Premium. There will be Bearlake G and Bearlake P chipsets in Q2, followed by Bearlake X and Bearlake G+ in the third quarter.
More details at The Inq.
