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.

Are these things running at 266fsb? I thought all of the extremes were at 333fsb.

I thought the FSB of Conroe would be 1333 or 1000.

That was the original rumor, but now the Core 2 Extreme is nothing more then a clockspeed bump above the Core 2 Duo E6700. Here is the final lineup:

Core 2 Extreme X6800 - 2.93GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache
Core 2 Duo E6700 - 2.67GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache
Core 2 Duo E6600 - 2.40GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache
Core 2 Duo E6400 - 2.13GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache
Core 2 Duo E6300 - 1.86GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache

The Core 2 Duo all have a TDP of 65-Watts, while the Core 2 Extreme has a TDP of 80-Watts (well below the 125-Watts rating of the Athlon 64 FX-62 at 2.80GHz).
