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.

I predict these chips are first seen in the new Mac Pro desktops. I can definately see Apple going Woodcrest for their "entry level" Mac Pro model (1S, 2S available), and then offering this for their ultra high end (think around $5,000) units.

Would also make sense for an 8 Core G5, which is at 4 cores right now. :))
