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 is Intel's attempt to provide a distraction from AMD's upcoming AM2 processors


Yeah, Intel is going to spend billions to make a distraction?

Congrats, you are one of the few people who can leave me speechless.

No, the development is good. Trying to get out questionable benchmarks long, long before any product will be available... thats a distraction play. The point is, that IS what Intel is doing, AMD might be too, or some crackpot in france made it all up to get some hits.

It is funny that he leaves you 'speechless'. Thats pretty cool.
