Intel 2007 Transition Guide

Intel's 2007 guidance outlines the projected volume of each SKU by the end of the year
Intel's latest partner guidance revealed the shipment numbers it projects for 2007.
Two immediate things jump out for desktop projections: by Q4 2007, more than 85% of processor shipments will be at least dual-core; and by Q4 2007 the company only expects 5% of its desktop shipments to transition to quad-core.
Not only will dual-core take the center stage by Q4, but the company's guidance is also very clear about removing all 90nm SKUs before then as well -- no more Pentium D, Pentium 4, or Celeron D. This means there will only be four major components floating around in the channel and for OEMs: 65nm quad-core processors (Core 2 Extreme and Core 2 Quad), 65nm dual-core processors (Core 2 Duo), 65nm single-core Pentium E2000 and 65nm single-core Celeron 400.
All of these processors are in some way
derivatives. This is a large departure from Intel's 2006 channel where we had some 65nm
processors, a few 90nm
derivatives and all the Core 2 Duo SKUs. 2008 will really be the first year in several where Intel will only support two generations of processors:
Intel's guidance expects approximately 5% of its Q4 2007 desktop market to transition to quad-core, approximately 70% to transition to dual-core Core 2 Duo, 20% to transition to single-core Pentium E2000 and the rest to fill in the single-core Celeron 400, which is really just the same as Pentium E2000 with half the L2 cache.
For the mobile business, the transition guide is much murkier. Intel's guidance suggests that the company will even support the 90nm
CPU in Q4 2007, though Core 2 Duo will assume 90% of the company's mobile volume by that time. The rest of the market will fill in with legacy
Intel's guidance for Q4 2007 on servers is also very clear: the company expects a 70-30 split between quad-core Clovertown and dual-core Woodcrest. Where quad-core will only consume a small portion of the desktop market, the server market will be almost entirely dominated by quad-core.

A recent post of mine says it all-

Some marketing news-
"Intel to keep 65nm-based processors as main hit for 2-way servers throughout 2007"
Intel will position its 65nm-based Dual-Core Xeon 5100 sequence (Woodcrest) and Quad-Core Xeon 5300 sequence (Clovertown) series processors as the main force in the 2-way server market in 2007, and will not begin introducing its 45nm-based quad-core (Harpertown) and dual-core (Wolfdale) processors until 2008, according to sources familiar with Intel's plans.
Intel has scheduled to continually raise the shipping ratio of Clovertown processors for 2-way servers from 30% in the first quarter 2007, to 70% in fourth quarter. While Woodcrest processors will drop from 60% in first quarter to 30% in fourth quarter, added the sources.
The longer product cycle is expected to help bring a measure of stabilization to the 2-way server market, as it enables manufacturers time to focus on developing product lines based on the two processor series, the sources explained.
