Due to a reporting error, the story "AMD's first eight-core desktop processors detailed," posted to the wire on Wednesday, misstated the number of cores in Intel's Core i7-2600 microprocessor. The chip has four processing cores.
The ninth paragraph in the story has been updated and now reads:
Intel also offers the Core i7-2600 quad-core processor, which is based on the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture and priced at $294. The chip has been demonstrated running gaming systems.
