Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9770 CPU pushed back to Feb-March 2008

Intel Core 2Intel has pushed back the volume shipment date of its Core 2 Extreme QX9770 processors for the high-end desktop segment to February-March 2008 instead of January as reported previously, according to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers.

The quad-core 3.2GHz QX9770, which will be available at US$1,399 in thousand-unit quantities, is to replace the Core 2 Extreme QX9650 processor launched in November 2007, the sources noted.

However, Intel is yet to phase out the 3.0GHz QX9650 despite the planned launch of the QX9770, said the sources noting that the two quad-core CPUs will be available simultaneously, although the 1k-unit price for the QX9770 will be US$400 higher than that for the QX9650.

The TLB (translation lookaside buffer) bug found at AMD's Phenom processors has weakened AMD's ability to compete with Intel for the high-end desktop CPU market, a scenario that may lead to Intel to monopolize the segment, allowing the company to ask higher prices for its upcoming high-end processors, the sources contended.

The QX9770 will be Intel's last high-end desktop CPU to support FSB technology before Intel's first Nehalem-microarchitecture CPU, Bloomfield, based on QPI (quick path interconnect) technology is launched in the fourth quarter, the sources noted.
