Intel Preps 45nm Quad-core Desktop Launch
September 28, 2007 4:44 AM
Intel's Extreme Edition "Yorkfield" processor will launch on November 12; sub-3.0 GHz variants will launch in the first half of January 2008
Intel’s latest roadmap reveals upcoming additions to its desktop processor lineup. Unfortunately, anybody awaiting a straightforward naming convention will need to hold out a bit longer as the processor numbers for desktop
chips complicate the naming situation even further.
The launch of an Extreme Edition version of a chip before mainstream offerings follows Intel’s
, and as such the rest of the
family will not be seen until the first half of January 2008. The company ambiguously names January 2nd through 20th as the slated launch date for the processors, though companies generally tend to time launch events with trade shows. The 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show starts on January 7, 2008.
Quad-Core Desktop - 1333 MHz FSB
The first of the new desktop processors, the quad-core
-based QX9650, will be released on November 12 at an expected price of $999. The operating frequency of Intel's highest end 45nm quad-core at launch will be 3.0 GHz.
processors will not launch with the 1600 MHz front-side bus. Intel's halo
enthusiast Skulltrail V8 platform
uses 1600 MHz workstation processors on a server-class motherboard and chipset.
The Intel Q9550, Q9450 and Q9300 will be the first of the mainstream
offerings. At $266, the 45nm 2.50 GHz Q9300 replaces the 65nm 2.4 GHz Q6600.
Dual-Core Desktop - 1333 MHz FSB
Intel guidance also suggests an intermediate SKU between E8400 and E8200, aptly named the E8300. This processor will eventually replace the 2.83 GHz dual-core processor previously named E8200. Since the E8300 and E8200 specifications are not set in stone, neither is the final pricing. Intel's lowest price-point for dual-core 65nm is $163, and it's safe to wager that the E8300 or E8200 will also carry the same pricing.
Before Intel's media-blitz on November 12, the company will silently launch the 65nm 2.4 GHz dual-core E4600
processor on October 21, 2007.
