Intel's first quad-core processor, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700, will be sold for $999 in 1,000 unit quantities. The Core 2 Q6600 which will be released in January 2007 will be a bit cheaper but will still cost $851.
As prices for both the QX6700 and Q6600 are too high, it will prevent the quad-core CPUs from gaining popularity, stated the sources. According to Intel's roadmap, quad-core processors will only account for 3% of the company's total desktop CPU shipments within one year following the launch, the sources indicated.
