Quad-Cores for Everyone

iSuppli: Quad-Cores in half of all mainstream PCs by end 2009

April 17, 2007 - By the end of 2009, half of all mainstream PCs will come with a Quad-Core processor, according to data from iSuppli. The high cost and limited availability of quad-core microprocessors has restricted their use to the high end of the PC market.

PC segment Q1 2007 Q1 2008 Q1 2009
performance desktop 16% 43% 85%
mainstream desktop 0% 7% 25%
value desktop 0% 0% 0%
mainstream notebook 0% 0% 4%

In the first quarter of 2007, only 16 percent of performance desktop PCs were based on quad-core microprocessors. By the end of this year, that number is expected to rise to 33 percent and then to 94 percent by the end of 2009.
