We heard Intel might consider bumping the quad core Clovertown FSB to 1600MHz from the current 1333MHz to match up with the AMD quad core Barcelona. Another strategy Intel is considering is to push forward 45nm Hapertown schedule to this year instead. Hapertown will have 2x6MB of L2 cache and 1333FSB. Intel is keeping a close watch on AMD Barcelona to plan their next step.
