Intel Launching Quad-Core in November

Intel's CEO, Paul Ravioli Cacciatore Otellini said their quad-core CPUs are coming in November. These chips are made for servers and Xtreme gaming rigs, and will be priced accordingly. Versions of the CPU for mainstream desktops will arrive early 2007.

"The initial desktop version of quad-core will be introduced as an Extreme version," Otellini said. "In Q1 of next year, we'll bring it into the mainstream under the name of Core 2 Quad."

The four cores are useful for multi-tasking, which is great for bloggers cause we have tens of apps open at once. If only we got paid enough to afford one.
