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.

RE: Motherboard support?

If you have interest in quad-core motherboard compatibility, hold off your motherboard purchase until you see the "whites of Intel's quad-core eyes". Intel has a significant recent history of non-forward-compatible chipsets. (All in the interest of keeping Intel's chip-production facilities fully loaded, of course) The Intel Core2 Quad is "reputedly-compatible" with the 975-equipped motherboards; no specific mention of 965. Also, since the power-demands of the quad-core is greater than the dual-core, there may be some power-regulator issues also. Remember all the existing LGA-775 motherboards that are not compatible with Core2/Conroe because of power-regulator changes?
