Intel Prepares 6-Core CPUs

Intel is planning to launch its 6-core Dunnington microprocessor. It should be the last Core marchitecture based CPU before switching over to Nehalem which is capable of supporting 8 or more cores.

Being a successor of Harpertown, Dunnington is reported to have 3 dual-core Penryn chips "glued" together on the die size of a postage stamp (similar to what they did on Core 2 Quad I guess). It will boast a shared L3 cache of 16MB and a TDP of over 120W.

It should be available in Q3 or even Q2, before the launch of Nahalem processors.
