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.

They can't trademark Core. But they can trademark how it is shown. ie. the graphic representation of Core. If you look carefully, just like "Microsoft", there is a non-standard typeface, or edit to a standard typeface to make it "trademark".

"Intel Core" is not trademarked as of yet. It's pending. It's unlikely that they'll receive a TM for "Core" alone, since it's far too generic of a term in the semiconductor industry. "Intel Core", which is the term pending in the PTO, might receive protection though.
