Intel "Earlier this month, Intel held a 'reviewer's workshop' event where they invited a number of representatives from hardware review sites to spend a few days benchmarking and learning about their new Core 2 microarchitecture. The star of the show was Woodcrest, which is the top end of the Core 2 lineup and will be replacing the last Netburst-based Xeon processor in June. The participating reviewers got to benchmark both Dempsey and Woodcrest, and the results of those benchmark runs are now available. In all, Woodcrest looks like a stellar performer that massively improves on its predecessors in both raw horsepower and power efficiency."

AMD in trouble at least until 2007

Looking at the currently known timelines from AMD and Intel it looks that AMD is in trouble until they release their 65nm chips in volume in 2007 and possibly their next-gen processors later on.

With Woodcrest (06/2006), Conroe (07/2006) and Merom (08/2006) Intel will take the lead for 2-4 core servers, workstations and 2 core laptops.
