In the third quarter of this year we can expect the Woodcrest which will feature a 1333MHz FSB, although there are some indications Intel may pull this launch into the second quarter.
In Q4 the company will release a low voltage version of Woodcrest, along wih the 5000P chipset.
According to recent roadmaps seen by the INQ, other flags Intel has alerted its customers too include a change in the launch of Bensley/Glidewell to the second quarter. It will also introduce a 3.73GHz Dempsey chip in the second quarter, while during this quarter it will introduce a Presler 960 SKU to its uniprocessor line up. Intel now says it will introduce the Itanium Madison 533MHz processors during this quarter. The Dempsey will cost $830 at launch, and that will mean a price cascade of sorts when it’s launched.The Montecito 9000 family is slated for mid-Q2 2006 and the Tulsa which features 16MB L3 cache and a 667/800MHz FSB will arrive in Q4 2006.
The Madison 533s will have 9MB and 6MB of L3 cache respectively, will clock at 1.6GHz, and will cost $4,200 and $1,980 respectively.
Additionally, we can also expect the Whitmore Lake iMCH chipset, a ULV version of its dual core Xeon, and a dual core LV version of Mr Yonah in Q2 2006.
