The news of the Havendale delay follows on the heels of AMD announcing that its first Fusion processor has been shifted from a 45 nm to a 32 nm process and delayed into 2011 as a result. Baird refers to a previously posted Fudzilla article, which broke the Intel news late last week.
Havendale will be Intel’s first processor with a heterogeneous multi-core structure, integrating a GPU on the CPU die. Reasons for the delay are unknown. According to Fudzilla, Intel will begin production of (45 nm) Havendale CPU+GPUs in Q4 2009 with an anticipated launch date of Q1 2010.
