Intel sells 2 million quad cores in Q3

Currently offers more than 20 quad core designs


Intel claims that it has sold more than 2 million quad core CPUs in Q3. Considering the high prices associated with these high end chips, this is truly a noteworthy feat.

Chipzilla currently offers more than 20 quad core designs. About half of them are desktop CPUs, while the rest are server parts. Although 2 million chips might not seem like much in the big scheme of things, we have to keep in mind that the prices for quad cores range from $270 for the Q6600 and $527 for the Q6700, all the way up to $999 for QX parts.

With several interesting Penryn quad cores set to launch in January, Intel will most likely have more good news for its investors come Q1. Just to put things in perspective, Intel managed to sell over 2 million relatively expensive quad cores in Q3, while AMD launched its native quad core Barcelona server parts in September, so it's safe to say that AMD hasn't sold many.

Unfortunately, AMD still has no desktop parts to offer, but this should change next month with the Phenom X4 launch.
