Intel to ship quad-core chip in \'07

updated 12:30 pm EST, Tue February 14, 2006

Intel quad-core chip

A top executive from Intel Friday said the company expects to ship its first quad-core processor--dubbed Clovertown--in early 2007, and hopes to sell 60 million dual-core chips this year which will account for roughly one quarter of total processor sales. "Clearly the momentum around multi-core is building," Intel chief technology officer Justin Rattner said. The new chip bundles four processors in a single unit, and uses less power than a single-core design, according to a report from Reuters. Rattner declined to comment on whether all four cores are on a single die, or if Clovertown would use two dual-core chips coupled together. Rattner said he envisioned a day when a single chip will have tens or even hundreds of cores. "It's kind of like how many angels can you fit on the head of a pin?" Rattner noted.
