Sales of quad-core processors are going well, according to Intel it sold 2 million quad-core processors in the third quarter of this year:
Chipzilla currently offers more than 20 quad core designs. About half of them are dsktop CPUs, while the rest are server parts. Although 2 million chips might not seem like much in the big scheme of things, we have to keep in mind that the prices for quad cores range from $270 for the Q6600 and $527 for the Q6700 all the way up to $999 for QX parts.

With several interesting Penryn quad cores set to launch in January, Intel will most likely have more good news for its investors come Q1. Just to put things in perspective, Intel managed to sell over 2 million relatively expensive quad cores in Q3, AMD launched its native quad core Barcelona server parts in September, so it's safe to say that they haven't sold many.
