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.

No, it's actually just a static screenshot.

All products demo'ed at IDF today are actually powered by AMD processors.

A but I am one a person that remembers shows like this done by intel all the time. I rememeber when they demoed 1 GHz, 1.5 GHz PIIIs and a 5GHz P4. They showed a small box and demo-ed that it was working, while in reality they were using big huge Nitrogen coolers in the back to get it to run in that state. Infact I think the 5GHz was northwood and not even a presscott. It would be so much easier for them to show a dual CPU Dual core machine with hyperthreading then to demo a chip that is a year or 2 way from seeing the light of day.

No sh*t, genius.

Intel stated that those processors were overclocked. You think you're the only one that realized they were liquid/nitrogen cooled?
