Clovertown, quad-core CPU; two socket system demonstration
Quad-core CPUs are very close to maturity and may arrive sooner than expected

Intel shows a demonstration of its next generation quad-core processor, codenamed Clovertown with a multi-threaded benchmark (Cinebench). The CPU is Intel's first quad-core processor and is running on a dual-socket board. Notice in the screenshot that Windows is detecting 8 cores.

AMD previously spoke that it is also working on its own next-generation quad-core processor and hints at a release sometime later this year.

Officially, Clovertown's target is Q1'07. Unofficially, they're trying to reel it into '06.

Don't know about AMD though.
