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.

Its not 8 Cores... Its 4 Cores with Hyper Threading.
This is incorrect. The newer Xeon processors currently available work like this (dual core with Hyper Threading = 4 processing threads per processor), but the processors which this article is referring to are true quad core processors. The MB being run is dual socket, so you see 2x quad core processors = 8 processing cores. Add Hyper Threading and you'd get 16 processing threads from Windows (8 cores, 8 virtual cores). I wonder if task manager would crash if you did that :-).

Not at all, considering I've been using 16-core Windows machines for several years now.
