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.

You start off on an impressive note-Intel rep contacting..... etc.
Yes you could have used the opportunity to convince Intel to send you their Conroe for your website review.
A review like this will become The Talk of the town(sorry web).
All the roadmaps/prices etc that U put out are good as information,but a product test/review will have all glued to the screen.
So GET the conroe & TEST IT & PUT out the REVIEW.

There's a NDA in effect. They can't.

We have three processors and no motherboards. We do not sign NDAs or embargos, so as soon as we get a motherboard we will do some fairly extensive tests.
