Monica Chen, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 19 December 2007]

Intel has recently adjusted its product strategy and will postpone three 45nm quad-core CPUs that were originally scheduled to launch in January next year, according to sources at motherboard makers.

Intel has already notified its partners that it will push back the launch of the three CPUs to February or March next year, depending on AMD's schedule for triple-core and the upcoming Phenom CPUs.

Launching the CPUs now will not benefit Intel much in its battle with AMD, while they could cause damage to Intel's 65nm quad-core CPUs, therefore the company has decided it is in no rush to release new products until AMD is able to present more of a threat.

The three CPUs that Intel plans to delay are the Core 2 Quad Q9300, Q9450 and Q9550, added the sources.

Intel commented that its launch of 45nm quad-core CPUs for desktops is on track for first quarter 2008, but declined to disclose a specific time-frame.

ahhhh!!! Now not only is AMD screwing themselves by releasing crappy, unfinished, underperforming, sub-par products which are months or years behind the competition but they are ruining my dreams of upgrading in January... Bastards!

Aren't those 45nm quads the four-way processors (Tigerton maybe)? If so, Intel is making a mistake because AMD has eight-way which is ultimately faster than four-way but at a greater cost.

The delayed Core 2 Quad Q9300, Q9450 and Q9550 are the mainstream penryn quad cores.

If it is a mistake, it's a minor stumble in a race in which AMD is currently drunkenly staggering along 100 yards back, slurring at the top of their lungs, "That'sh not fair, we were winning a couple of yearsh ago! Bastidges. Let me pump up my shoes."

well that ought to give u some idea about what market whores Intel are. They've always been this way.
Cut-throat business. Just wait till AMD delivers a processor that breaks the core 2's (IF... MAYBE..... HOPEFULLY :) ) .... we'll be back in the days of speed scaling.

I;m guessing this isnt doing Intels image any good.

Just seeing the performance of that Q9450 makes me even more impaitent with regard to the mainstream penryn launch.
