Intel Intel demonstrated two quad-core processors Tuesday, 'Clovertown' for servers and 'Kentsfield' for PCs, directing attention toward the future during a more troubled present. Pat Gelsinger, a senior vice president in Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, demonstrated both processors in a speech at the company's Intel Developer Forum here. Both chips are built using Intel's 65-nanometer manufacturing process and will ship in the first quarter of 2007, Intel representatives said.

I honestly expect AMD's highend dual core chips to beat Intel's quad core ones.

Sorry to break your expectations, but...

2.66 Ghz Conroe is upto 20-40% faster than 2.8Ghz FX-60.

I forecast lots more missed quarterly sales quotas before Intel gets a clue and fixes its root problem, an on chip memory controller

Intel CSI interconnect bus will appear in 2007. As for now, well, the 1333MHz FSB is not so bad.

one little problem... the FX-60 isn't AMD's highend chip, its the highend of the middle of the road, opteron is AMD's high end line, not the FX-60 that the article would have you beleve. The opteron 2xx and 8xx series have even more memory bandwidth, so don't let the pro-intel sites fool you.

I Didn't see any world record benchmarks posted from Intel perhaps they are hiding something?

Explain for the reader the computationally-significant differences between the FX-60, Opteron 185, Opteron 285, and Opteron 885 in single-processor configurations. Also help the reader by pointing out where he can purchase a CrossFire Opteron 885 board.

Conroe isn't Woodcrest, and games aren't really what one uses a server processor for. Conroe isn't Clovertown either, which is the real target of his criticism. There are some comments about the Hexus and AnandTech game benchmarks that I could make, but I'd rather wait.
