Digitimes reports Intel’s Core i5 platforms have been tentatively delayed from its original launch date to Early September 2009.

The debut of its new mainstream desktop PC platform, Lynnfield processors (tentatively Core i5) and 5-series chipsets were originally scheduled for a July launch.

Global economic slowdown was blamed for the delay as to allow more time for the 4-series chipset supplies to deplete.

Core i5 CPUs will come in frequencies of 2.93GHz, 2.8GHz and 2.66GHz and priced at US$562, US$284 and US$196 in thousand-unit tray quantities.

The entry-level Havendale processor is also scheduled for launch in January 2010, while P57, H57 and H55 chipsets will prolly launch somewhere in Q1’10.
