Intel has been on fire for the past couple months, starting with Woodcrest released, then Core 2 Duo (Conroe) and recently Core 2 Duo for mobile (Merom). Keeping up with its momentum Intel plans to get their Quad-core CPUs out for the holiday season by November this year. It was originally planned to be release in first quarter of 2007, the Quad-core CPU called “Kentsfield” is Intel’s answer to AMD’s 4×4 platform. Intel is expected to introduce Kentsfield in the Core Extreme family. The Core Extreme processors lineup is known for usage in high-end system. No pricing information available yet. So those who are not upgrading to Core 2 Duo should hold your horses if you have some cash to spend on end of the year upgrades.
