Dell’s Rick Schuckle (technology group lead) “elaborates on some of the benefits that quad-core processors like Intel’s upcoming Core 2 Quad processor—the chip formerly known as Kentsfield—will bring to both enterprise customers and consumers alike.” What are your thoughts? Video after the jump.

Kentsfield will be a one socket solution; for example, the QX6700 will be two E6700 chips connected together by a 1066 MHz FSB on one MCM, resulting in lower costs but less bandwidth to the northbridge. As can be expected, 4 cores scale very well in multi-threaded applications, such as video editing, ray-tracing, or rendering, where the performance doubles compared to an equally clocked Core 2 Duo
