Intel says Nehalem on track
First, we learned that Centrino 2 is delayed (confirmed), then it we heard that Nehalem may slip as well. American Technology Research analyst Doug Freedman, who was first to highlight the Centrino 2 delay, told EETimes that Nehalem “server parts will initially launch in single-socket only”, which may be considered the second launch delay this year and stain the reputation of company’s development and production engine.
Intel spokesperson Nick Knupffer told TG Daily that there have been no changes to the company’s plans regarding Nehalem’s production schedule. While the company did not comment on Freedman’s remarks directly, Knupffer said that the “long stated position has been production in Q4 08 and [Intel is] on track for that.”
