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.

I was actually thinking in comparison to memory speed - but still I believe that 3.2Ghz will be 1066Mhz quad pump bus - but the 1333Mhz bus is not going to happen until a new chipset, but there is a good point - it leave possibiliy of 1600Mhz bus out there.

Actually there is chipsets that officially support 1333Mhz - called 5000x and 5000p - but that is for Woodcrest.

All I am saying here, that I believe there is lots of room for future higher speeds - just like begining of P4 series.

Exiting times are ahead.

Ok I found more information on the 3.2Ghz, I found the following link.. a lot of benchmarks

The 3.2 in this test is 11x over clock system, but Intel plans to 3.2Ghz 12x system. Check out the review, they compare it FX-62.
