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.

2.66 at 4.6 is a netburst thing, I highly doubt we will se any core 2 duos at anything close to that overclockability for quite some time.

They have already gotten Conroes (aka Core 2) using LN2 to overclock to 5 Ghz at XStreamSystems. Here is the link:

That's a crazy OC. I hope the shipping products are just as good. Otherwise, there will be Internet-wide riots. LOL!

Thats very impressive however LN2 is a far cry from Air or Water, if people are getting core2's to 4 or higher on Water, I might very well go back to intel (its been a while, 2.26 p4 folowed by 754 3200, 939 3200, currently 939 4400 at 2.7 on water)

That's nice. I'll have to order some more LN2 for my box tonight then as you consider that sort of thing normal.
