Good news for Intel fans. Not only did Intel CEO say their Core 2 Extreme processors with four cores will be available in November, he also said the Core 2 Quad for mainstream computers will be released sometime in Q1 2007. Even better news, he promises Intel will have an 80 core processor sometime in the next five years. Five!
Intel also says the Quad core processors have 70 percent faster integer performance than the Core 2 Duos, which to you means that Intel has retaken the lead in processors performance from the previous champ AMD.
