Intel will launch the Core 2 Quad chip for high-end desktop PCs during the CES trade show in Las Vegas the week of Jan. 8, industry sources said.
The newest Quad processor chip from Intel follows the Quad-core Xeon 5300 and Quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 launched in November. Unlike the other processors, the "Core 2 Quad" is expected to be aimed at mainstream users.
While there are no known plans for Apple to use the Core 2 Quad, there have been some rumors that Apple may use the Quad-core Xeon 5300 for a future 8-Core Mac Pro.
