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.

RE: 4 cores @ 90nm?

As far as I know they're running production .65 silicon in Fab 30 right now and still planning for a Q2 of this year intro, about the same timing as their AM2 socket update. If they're doing x4 on .65 that gives them plenty of time to get 4 cores on 65 this year.

you mean .65 process at fab 36 right??
AS far as I understood fab 30 was at full capacity with the .90 process. no?

They don't even have 65nm equipment fully installed in Fab36, much less Fab30. No, Fab30 will not produce 65nm parts.

They probably have one test production line at 36 and will ramp by late '06. Products should arrive by Q1'07.
