Intel to scare away AMD


Intel seems to be leaking information quicker than us poor journalists have time to write it up these days and according to another piece of information that's made its way online, Intel is going to launch the Extreme Edition of its upcoming Yorkfield core this side of Christmas.

No clock speeds have been revealed, but the CPU should be clocked at more than the 3GHz of the current Core 2 Quad Extreme QX6850. It will have 12MB of cache memory and it will be the first consumer CPU from Intel based on 45nm.

The remaining Yorkfield and Wolfdale processors won't launch until Q1 2008 as reported earlier. The question is if this is a response by Intel against the upcoming AMD FX processors based on the K10 core and a means of stealing away AMD's thunder.
