Lately rumors have been floating around that Nehalem has hit a serious snag and won’t ship this year. What does Intel have to say on the subject?
"Nehalem ... is still scheduled to launch in the second half of the year," [Intel CEO Paul] Otellini told the company's annual meeting of shareholders.
He also confirmed plans to quickly increase output of computer processors made with the latest technology, which can etch circuits 45 nanometers wide, 30 percent smaller than previous chips using a 65-nanometer process.
We wouldn’t be surprised to see at least a few Nehalem-powered demo boxes when we hit Computex in a few short weeks if the chip is on track for a release later this year. Stay tuned...
