Intel's Q2'06 earnings report
, Intel CEO Paul Otellini revealed that Intel has moved up its launch schedule for quad-core processors to Q4 2006 instead of Q1 2007 as originally announced by Intel in roadmaps and public relations.
Otellini claimed "We notified customers that we're pulling in both a desktop and server of the first quad-core processors into the fourth quarter of this year from the first half of 2007." These two processors, dubbed
, respectively, are essentially twin-die packages of Core 2 Duo.
In late May, Intel announced that the company will ship a
3.2GHz Core 2 Extreme processor followed by quad-core
has always been slated as an Extreme processor, meaning it will carry a larger price tag than the traditional Core 2 Duo series. Intel's quad-core server processor, dubbed
, is virtually identical to
but will use the Socket 771 package instead of Socket 775.
Furthermore, Otellini confirmed that quad-core isn't the only processor series moved up. The CEO confirmed
has been moved up and is already shipping to revenue, as was reported by
) several days ago. Intel's
processors for Xeon MP
are also already shipping to revenue according to Otellini, but the availability of these processors has largely been overshadowed by

a 4x4 is a vehicle with 4 wheels and all 4 of those wheels are driven (all-wheel drive).
a 4x2 is a vehicle with 4 wheels and just 2 of those are powered (so either front or rear-wheel drive).

"a 4x4 is a vehicle with 4 wheels and all 4 of those wheels are driven (all-wheel drive).
a 4x2 is a vehicle with 4 wheels and just 2 of those are powered (so either front or rear-wheel drive). "
Exactly, so a 2x2 would be a two processor system, where two processors work to the fullest (not a quad processor system). Of course, on single-threaded apps it would be 2x1. (You could say a P4 + HT would be 2 x 4 from that standpoint.) But really, 4x4 is just a marketing thing, IMO. Most people don't care how many sockets there are, just how much work gets done...
"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet. A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
