Intel quad-core Nehalem planned for 2009

According to FUD Zilla we'll have to wait until 2009 for the first eight-core Nehalem processors:
The quad core is schedule for Q4 2008 and we saw one running the four threads back in September 2007 at IDF San Francisco.

In the roadmap seen by Fudzilla there is no sign of eight cores / sixteen threads in Q1 2009 and especially not in Q4 2008 which means that you will have to wait a bit more before you see this monster.

Imagine two of these in Skulltrail would have thirty two threads and sixteen cores, yeah we can never get enough.
