The Tech Report writes Intel may be planning to release its quad-core Kentsfield processor on the first of November:
Intel's first quad-core desktop processor is coming in less than two weeks, if a report by The Inquirer is to be believed. Previous rumors claimed the chip was due on November 14, one day after its server- and workstation-bound counterpart known as Clovertown. However, Intel is said to have pulled the launch forward a couple of weeks to November 1, perhaps as a countermeasure against the launch of AMD's first 4x4 processor kits, which separate reports also peg some time in November.
The first quad-core processor will run at 2.66GHz. It has 8MB cache and will be priced at $999.
