3.2GHz "Conroe" gets confirmed by Intel

Intel representatives just contacted DailyTech with the following information:

The Core 2 Extreme processor (Conroe based) will ship at 2.93GHz at Core 2 Duo launch.   We will also have a 3.2GHz version by end of the year.   And as you know, the Quad Core enthusiast SKU, Kentsfield, is planned for Q1'07.

Several days ago, we published details of Intel's Core 2 Duo roadmap, although the roadmap did not have information about a 3.2GHz Conroe.  Intel's Extreme Edition processors typically launch at a $1,000 USD price point, and then are quickly phased out in time for the next generation.

The 2.93GHz Conroe processor will ship as the Core 2 Duo X6800 processor.  Previous Intel roadmaps have also confirmed that the launch date for Conroe, the desktop Core 2 Duo processor, is slated for July 23, 2006.

If all these unofficial reports around the web are anywhere near correct 3.2GHz EE @ ~$1000 = bye bye/cheap cheap FX60/62!

I wouldn't expect the FX60 and FX62 chips to disappear or be cut down in price. Look at the P4 EE chips now. Just because they're not the fastest available doesn't mean that Intel's not going to try to make every last dime out of fools who will pay $1100 so they can brag to all their leet friends that they have a leet processor.

Yeah crappy Intel costs 1100$,

Why wouldn’t the good AMD still cost 1100$.

Or everyone is going to stop buying it.
