Intel In No Hurry

DigiTimes via Hardocp:

Intel has recently adjusted its product strategy and will postpone three 45nm quad-core CPUs that were originally scheduled to launch in January next year, according to sources at motherboard makers.

Why the delay?

Launching the CPUs now will not benefit Intel much in its battle with AMD, while they could cause damage to Intel's 65nm quad-core CPUs, therefore the company has decided it is in no rush to release new products until AMD is able to present more of a threat.

Intel basically said, "Hey, we're making loads of cash and AMD is in the gutter. Why compete with ourselves by releasing better products quickly?"

End result: Intel wins, AMD gets humiliated, the consumer loses.

I'm too in love with the convenience of laptops to ever buy a desk machine again anyway.

Call me when they have cheap low power quad-core chips.

We'll likely see such chips starting in 2009. Till then they'll come with a price premium.
