MPR's analysis of Katmai is that it offers no benefits for business users or consumers not interested in 3D or video. In fact, Willamette should be shipping by now (4 years since the P6 was designed), but it hasn't even taped out... suggesting the proliferation of P6 cores (Klamath, Deschutes, Mendocino, Dixon, and Katmai) and the development of Merced is spreading Intel's engineers too thin.
