According to sources at Taiwan motherboard makers who are familiar with Intel’s latest roadmap, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700, Intel?s first quad-core processor, will sell for US$999 in 1000 unit quantities.

As prices for both the QX6700 and Q6600 are too high, it will prevent the quad-core CPUs from gaining popularity, stated the sources. According to Intel’s roadmap, quad-core processors will only account for 3% of the company’s total desktop CPU shipments within one year following the launch, the sources indicated.
