Last minute changes to Intel's roadmap
Contrary to what
Intel roadmaps had previously indicated
, Intel today officially announced the Intel Core 2 Quad processor. The Core 2 Quadro moniker that was designated earlier appears to have been changed at the last minute, as launch material from late September 2006 claimed the official product name would be Core 2 Quadro.
Intel's Core 2 Quad processor will officially launch in Q1'07, dubbed the Q6600 processor. The
Xeon X3210 and X3220
are expected to launch in Q1’07 as well.

In mid-November of this year, the company will announce its first quad-core desktop CPU—the
Core 2 Extreme QX6700 clocked at 2.66 GHz
. Intel is also expected to launch its
around the same time frame. All of Intel’s quad-core
will be equipped with 2x4MB of L2 cache.

I wonder if nVidia had something to do with Intel deciding to not use the Quadro name :)

Yea really. I figured if they really wanted to use the quadro name they were going to have to pay nVidia for it.

I'm not entirely certain where the idea that Intel would brand kentsfield as core 2 quadro got started - purrhaps with TomsHardware deciding that they needed to give kentsfield an appealing name in their preview.
Either way, I severely doubt that intel's marketing/branding department would have ever considered naming a product the same as another company's product that exists in the same market. (The market in question being computer components.) After all, can't have someone looking at a workstation and see quadro in the description and hence assume it has nvidia graphics.
