June 6, 2006 didn't fit AMD's schedule

We just got official confirmation from motherboard and chipset manufacturers in Taiwan -- AMD has moved the official launch date of Athlon 64 DDR2 up two weeks to May 23, 2006. AMD roadmaps have previously put the AM2 launch at June 6, 2006 (during Computex 2006), but since motherboards and CPUs are already completed, the launch will be pushed up. AMD insiders tell us Conroe's launch date was also a factor in pushing the AM2 launch date up, though even we do not know the exact date Intel's Conroe will launch.

AMD's latest advisories claimed the following:
  • May 16, 2006: Global announcement of Energy Efficient Processor roadmap and pricing
  • May 23, 2006: Global announcement of Socket AM2 and new desktop product availability and pricing
  • May 31, 2006: Global announcement of AMD LIVE! desktop system availability

Conroe release earlier

According to rumors AMD pulled forward AM2 release bcos Conroe is releasing in June. AMD will have to decrease prices once Conroe releases and they are trying to squeeze as much as they can until then. Exciting times for the consumers. Hope people are sensible and wait for conroe before buying AM2 or conroe as they will get best bang for buck.

AMD is also attempting to attract attention from the Conroe.

Just remember with Conroe, the Pentium 4/D lines end and new Conroe/Woodcrest/Merom line just begins
