What and when will be the Intel 32nm quad-core CPUs?

It seems Q1 2009 Intel's "tick" for the 32nm CPUs will be dual-core ones and six-core one. What about quad-core 32nm? Is Intel holding them until Sandy Bridge?

Oh well, I guess I'll just grab one of these dirt cheap Phenoms and wait until first price cuts of Sandy Bridge (~H1 2011).

Intel doesn't have the capacity for more 32nm chips, between clarkdale/arrandale and gulftown, they're going to be maxed out until the additional plants come online (and the first of which will add capacity, most likely, *just* for xeon chips.). Sandy bridge is probably going to be "done" before the capacity is available.

copy/pasted my reply from another thread.

I thought the 32nm shrink of Nehalem was supposed to be Westmere. Isn't Sandy bridge a new architecture? :confused:

Oh, yea I forgot. :) It's a joke obviously. But since Xeon MPs are always ~1 year later than the rest, I guess Westmere EX will be more likely.
