Ready for more rumors of processor delays? This time, it's Intel (not AMD
) in the spotlight according to DigiTimes
' sources at Taiwan motherboard makers. Intel is said to be delaying volume shipments of their quad-core QX9770
CPU for high-end desktops until February or March instead of January
as earlier believed. Worse yet, the proc is now rumored to cost $1,399 (in 1,000 unit quantities) when it ships -- not $1,200 as thought back in November. Hey Intel, if this move has anything to do with an intent to monopolize the market
in lieu of AMD's inability to compete then let us remind you of something -- the EU
and a certain Attorney General
are watching you.
