Intel not going to make many Bloomfields, ever
If you've doubted Intel was out to create a luxury brand with Bloomfields, this should remove them. This is not a typical new-generation product ramp for Intel. Historically, after three quarters, the proportion of new generation processors is more like 40%, not 5%. The only Intel product ramp we've seen that resembles this pattern was that for quadcores.
So how does this help AMD? It helps AMD because its 45nm chips will compete in the real world not against Nehalems, but Penryns. A real-life matchup between Denebs and Penryns ought to be a lot more competitive than we've seen in quite some time, and Intel will have nothing to trump that in the mass market until 3Q 2009.
