An online source has stated that Intel's first quad-core desktop processor, the Core 2 Extreme QX6700, which is scheduled to be released next month, will sell for US$999 in 1,000-unit quantities. The Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor will be available in January 2007 at US$851.

According to Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers the prices for both the QX6700 and Q6600 are too high, and it will prevent the quad-core CPUs from gaining popularity. Although Intel had already accounted for this in their roadmap, with an estimated 3% of the company's total desktop CPU shipments within one year following the launch coming from quad-core CPU's.
