Intel did manage to launch a single extremely expensive 45nm QX9650 Yorkfield chip in 2007, but in reality all desktop parts and notebook ramps at 45nm are taking place in 2008.
We predict that the blue team will do the same with Nehalem. It will launch it after IDF San Francisco in 2008, sell it for $1000+ and launch some reasonably priced parts in 2009. We just wanted to share this with you as if you are waiting for Nehalem four cores with eight treads under $1000, be prepared to wait to at least early 2009.
Intel to launch only one Nehalem this year?
