Dailytech: Intel "Kentsfield" Named Core 2 Quad

Last minute changes to Intel's roadmap

Contrary to what Intel roadmaps had previously indicated, Intel today officially announced the Intel Core 2 Quad processor. The Core 2 Quadro moniker that was designated earlier appears to have been changed at the last minute, as launch material from late September 2006 claimed the official product name would be Core 2 Quadro.

Intel's Core 2 Quad processor will officially launch in Q1'07, dubbed the Q6600 processor. The Kentsfield Xeon X3210 and X3220 are expected to launch in Q1’07 as well. DailyTech also previously explored the performance of Intel’s upcoming Core 2 Quad Q6600.

In mid-November of this year, the company will announce its first quad-core desktop CPU—the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 clocked at 2.66 GHz. Intel is also expected to launch its quad-core Xeon Clovertown 5300 series around the same time frame. All of Intel’s quad-core Kentsfield and Clovertown will be equipped with 2x4MB of L2 cache.

I remember reading on CNet that the "quadro" name was just a rumor. Probably started by some forum, and then spread around the world by the Inquirer.

You forgot to tag this on to the end of your last sentence: "because the Inquirer has mind control capabilities that force all people of the world to read and believe it, hence making my point valid instead of being completely speculative."

I still can't believe that Intel is sticking with that Core naming scheme. I think having 2 and Quad in the same name is confusing to mass market.

Yes, Kentsfield will work on all motherboards that are compatable with Core 2 Duo.

Bah, you could name something COMPUTER and it would confuse half the mass market LOL

It makes sense....Core is the new arcitechture away from Netburst, "2" is from the second generation of said arcitecture, and Quad for quad core (Duo for dual core and Solo for single core)

It makes perfect sense, you can't change and do things wrong just so people will understand it better



While the Quads will be the same socket (LGA775), not all current motherboards will run them. Most of the high end Core 2 Duo boards will run them fine, but many of the lower end ones may or may not. As with the switch from Pentium to Core 2, the power regulation and board design is the determining factor. As long as the power grid is up to snuff, a simple BIOS update would allow the Core 2 Quads to run.
