Submission + - Intel Delays 45nm Quads (fastsilicon.com)

mrneutron2003 writes: " Due to the apparent lack of threat from arch rival AMD , Intel recently adjusted its launch strategy with the forthcoming 45nm quad-core CPUs (Core 2 Quad Q9300, Q9450 and Q9550), and will postpone their originally scheduled January launch. Digitimes reports...
"Launching the CPUs now will not benefit Intel much in its battle with AMD, while they could cause damage to Intel's 65nm quad-core CPUs, therefore the company has decided it is in no rush to release new products until AMD is able to present more of a threat. Intel commented that its launch of 45nm quad-core CPUs for desktops is on track for first quarter 2008, but declined to disclose a specific time-frame."
With AMD's current financial and and process woes, Intel is probably doing them a big favor.
