Intel says 3.2GHz is enough for 2008

CES 2008:  At least for now


We learned that Intel doesn’t plan to release a CPU faster than Quad core 9770 3.2GHz by Q4 2008. Intel is well known for changing its own plans way too often, but the company simply thinks that it doesn’t have to.

This CPU can be overclocked to 4GHz on air so Intel still has a lot of headroom; but It won’t be pushing and competing by itself until AMD gets its act together.

In Q4 Intel is supposed to launch the Nehalem, its new native 45nm quad core with eight threads that will replace the core architecture, but if AMD doesn’t make a really competitive part to Core 2 Extreme 9770, Intel will stick with the 3.2GHz speed.

At least as of the early days of January, it looks like Intel will have quite an easy year, but AMD will be pushing back with products such as black Edition unlocked CPUs.
