Intel officially revealed the name of Kentsfield this morning, and branded it Core 2 Quad.

It will be out in November. We were treated to a demo of a Quad machine running Remedy's unreleased follow-up to Max Payne, Alan Wake.

The game looked, frankly, stunning. Remedy has coded the engine to take advantage of quad-core processors - the engine scales as you move from single to dual to quad. We saw some amazing environmental effects, not to mention true next-gen graphics that easily rival anything from Unreal Engine.

Markus Maki, Remedy's rep at the forum, said that Alan Wake had been 18 months in the making so far. The multiple cores are used to stream data in the background in preparation for moves into new areas, and to prepare output for the graphics card to render.

Markus also revealed that one whole core is used for physics calculations, and we saw a hurricane tear up the in-game world in a rather realistic fashion as illustration.

For the true enthusiasts, Intel revealed that this Kentsfield, the Q6700, had been overclocked up to 3.73GHz, a 1GHz clock, with no issues. "Overclocking is allowed here, huh?" mused Otellini.

Alan Wake looked stunning, and it seems that quad-core could soon be ready for gamers. We'll be hearing far more later on in the day, so we'll be sure to let you know.

Why?

And if anyone else says downgrade I'd like to ask "In what respect?" Because it looks exactly like the videos that have been shown.

praise be to god. i wasn't expecting any new Alan Wake stuff until tomorrow. sad that we've been so starved for media of this game that two slides are exciting.

and, Remedy already made two great Max Payne games. let them make their Twin Peaks game, and let people like me that loved the Payne games and loved Twin Peaks enjoy the heck out of it.

i don't think there are bigger Twin Peaks fanboys than the Remedy gang. i wonder if they'll ever make a game that doesn't have numerous references.

screens look just like the Pacific Northwest, specifically the North Bend area. i can't wait :)

i didn't get to make my pilgrimage to North Bend this year, so it'll be good to visit that place and some of it's landmarks in game.

yeah but it's not that big a deal. they did it after Max Payne, and still made Max Payne 2.

netted them, and 3d realms, a chunk of change.
