Intel to ship quad-core Core 2 Extreme in Q4

'Kentsfield' debut roadmapped

Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Intel roadmap data recently released to customers and now duly popping up on the web reveals the chip giant's quad-core offering 'Kentsfield' will be clocked to 2.66GHz at launch. It will also ship as the Core 2 Extreme.

Kentsfield comprises two dual-core Core 2 Duo CPUs bonded together in a single chip package, just as it did with its first dual-core desktop processor, 'Smithfield', which combined as pair of 'Prescott' dies.

The quad-core part will ship in Q4. It will run across a 1066MHz frontside bus. If Intel runs true to form, it will be priced at $999. But with AMD's rival 4x4 platform, which is due to ship later this year for what AMD staff has said will be "substantially" under $1,000, Intel may choose to price it lower.

The existing Core 2 Extreme X6800 will continue to be made available through Q1 2007, but it may be replaced in Q2 2007. ®
