Intel divides its market to two segment, Business OEM and consumer market. In the consumer market things are not really moving as in Q3 2008 Intel plans that seven percent of all CPUs will be Core 2 Quad 65nm while six percent will be 45nm based Quad cores. In Q4 2008 the ratio will change and Intel will increase the production of 45nm Quad cores to eight percent while the 65nm quad core market will shrink to five percent, but again we will end up with a magical 13 percent of the whole CPU market for quad cores. Q4 is traditionally the best quarter and Intel won't grow at all in this very profitable segment."
