Santa Clara (CA) - Xbit Labs is reporting that Stacy Smith, Intel's Chief Financial Officer, in response to a question from analyst Hans Mosesmann from Raymond James regarding Intel's future roadmap, has stated that Intel is on track to release Havendale "in the second half" of this year.
Havendale is Intel's upcoming Multi-Chip Module (MCM) Nehalem-based CPU packaged with LGA1160 interface, with an on-board graphics and memory controller unit (GMCH), DDR3, PCI-e 2.0 x16, built on 45nm technologies.
Earlier analysts had reported that Intel would delay its Havendale CPU+GPU into 2010. In addition, it was recently noted that Intel will be delaying Lynnfield slightly on weak global demand for CPUs, chipsets and in an effort to give Asustek and Gigabyte the opportunity to clear out over $300 million worth of overstocked 4-series chipset inventories. Intel's Smith has countered this saying it is on track for 2H'2009 introduction - which could also mean late December.
