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 that Intels insistence on using a Front Side Bus is effectively going to cripple them eventually. Okay, so at 1333Mhz, thats pretty fast and while the current Core 2 Duo's arent having a problem with it - in 4-way SMP, it's going to come back and bite them in the arse.
Not saying the Opterons are a better processor (although they are good), but they do have the best implementation when it comes to SMP, with NUMA and Hypertransport.
