We saw Intel's plans for quad core CPUs at IDF; now the company has confirmed we will see the new CPUs next year
A few weeks ago at the Intel Developer Forum we got a taste of Intel's
along with the
Core architecture briefing
. As of last week, this quad-core Conroe successor finally showed up on the Intel corporate roadmaps. The CPU will get its first taste of daylight as an Intel Extreme Edition processor in early 2007.
Kentsfield will still be a 65nm processor on the Intel Core platform, and work with existing 975X motherboards that already support Conroe. Due to the different voltage requirements on Conroe/Kentsfield, the first batch of 975X motherboards manufactured before January of 2006 need a different voltage regulation module (VRM) to support Core processors. However, engineers have confirmed to us the P965, Q965 and G965 motherboards -- slated for release within the next few months -- will support Kentsfield without any problems.
Kentsfield will feature two distinct dice on the same packaging; the chip will essentially be two Conroe cores stuck together,
as pictured here
is also expected to support quad core processing, but the actual launch dates for that platform have not been confirmed yet.

What would this imaginary 921 or 941 feature, given that the current 920 and 940 already feature VT, EM64T, and XD?

Nowadays everyone recommends the Dual Cores, except I still refuse to buy one till they add the fallowing features: EIST, TM2, HALT state. Which will happen in April with a new core revision, from B-1 to C-1.
Anyone with other insight?

Oh, you're referring to the much anticipated C-1.
That's April, probably May before it's on shelves. The 920 will not will not get a refresh - only 930 and up. There's no change to the processor number.
