Intel CEO Paul Otellini said Tuesday that "the DP server chip [Gainestown] would go into production 'in the first quarter of 2009.'"


On the bright side, the desktop Core i7s will be available before the end of this year (phew).

This is contrary to the previously published Intel Xeon roadmap, which suggested that by Q4 '08 a significant portion of manufacturing capacity would be for the Nehalem chips.


Considering that the Mac Pro uses dual processor Intel Xeons, the fact that the processors themselves won't be released until next year would mean that the Mac Pros would wait even longer before another major refresh.
