Roadmaps reveal launch dates for upcoming Intel products

DailyTech has come across a roadmap outline Intel’s launch plans for the next couple of months. Intel next week will launch five new products. At the beginning of the week Intel plans on silently releasing its Pentium D 925 processor. The Presler based Pentium D 925 is clocked at 3 GHz on a 1066 MHz front-side bus with 4MB L2 cache. Unlike the previous Pentium D 920, the 925 lacks Intel Virtualization Technology. Intel will finally release its dual-core Xeon 3000 series processors towards the middle of the week. Accompanying the Xeon 3000 series processor launch is Intel’s Kaylo server platform and Intel 3000 Mukilteo 2 and 3010 Mukilteo 2P chipsets.

While the Xeon 3000 series and Intel 3000/3010 chipsets will have a silent launch, Intel plans a high profile launch for its new storage products. Launching the same day as the Intel Xeon 3000 series and 3000/3010 chipsets are three new storage products. Intel will launch Sunrise Lake, Val Vista and Chevelon products. Sunrise Lake is a single chip SAS and SATA controller with an integrated storage processor while Val Vista is an SAS/SATA controller. Chevelon will be a high performance system-on-chip processor that’s based on a 90nm Xscale core, possibly replacing Intel’s previous i960. This completes Intel product launches for September.

October will be a quiet month for Intel, with the only product releasing being a Celeron D. Nevertheless the Celeron D 347 is expected to silently launch the fourth week of October. It will be based on Cedar Mill with a 3.06 GHz clock speed on a 533 MHz front-side bus. L2 cache is bumped up to 512KB from 256K found on current Prescott based Celeron D’s. Intel Enhanced Memory 64 Technology and Execute Disable Bit are supported with the Celeron D 347.

November brings the official launch of Intel’s quad-core processors for desktop, server and workstation environments. In mid-November Intel will launch its quad-core Clovertown Xeon 5300 series and quad-core Kentsfield Intel Core 2 Extreme processors. Quad-core Clovertown Xeons will launch with models X5355, E5345, E5320 and E5310 as previously reported. Kentsfield based quad-core Intel Core 2 Extreme will launch with a single QX6700 model. The Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 is expected to launch at 2.66 GHz and target entry-level workstation and enthusiast markets. Intel is planning a high profile launch for Clovertown Xeon 5300 series and Kentsfield Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processors.

Intel has nothing planned for the month of December, though January brings plenty of launches. On the desktop side of things Intel will introduce four new processors. Two new Core 2 architecture processors will arrive in the form of the Kentsfield Core 2 Quadro Q6600 and Core 2 Duo E4300. The Kentsfield Core 2 Quadro Q6600 will be clocked at 2.4 GHz while the E4300 will be clocked at 1.8 GHz. Intel’s Core 2 Duo E4300 is based on Conroe with 2MB of L2 cache and an 800 MHz front-side bus. The Kentsfield Core 2 Quadro Q6600 and Core 2 Duo E4300 launches will be a medium profile launch. Also launching in January is the previously reported quad-core Kentsfield Xeon 3200 series for single-processor servers and workstations.

Intel will also release two new Netburst based processors in the form of the Pentium D 935 and Celeron D 365. The Pentium D 935 will be similar to the 925 launching next week with a 3.2 GHz clock speed. Intel’s Celeron D 365 will be based on Cedar Mill like the 347 launching next month. Clock speed of the Celeron D 365 will be 3.60 GHz. No exact date has been given for the launch of the Core 2 Quadro Q6600, Core 2 Duo E4300, Xeon 3200 series, Pentium D 935 and Celeron D 365 except sometime between the second and last week of January.
