Intel 65nm process will still account for 40% of CPUs in Q4

The transition to 45nm processors isn't going that fast, FUD Zilla says 40 percent of Intel's processor shipments in the last quarter of this year will still be 65nm.
It will increase the output of 45nm dual-cores to 48 percent, while the quad-core 45nm will occupy 12 percent of total shipments, but there will be plenty other 65nm to ship around that time.

Intel does plan to stop the Quad-core 65nm and Core 2 duo 65nm parts, but Dual core Pentium E will remain available with 28 percent of the market share. Dual core Celeron E1000, Celeron 400 and Celeron 200 series will be represented with four percent each, with total market share of 12 percent.

You can imagine how tiny the Q4 Nehelem market presence will be, probably less than 1 percent of all CPUs.
