3.2GHz "Conroe" gets confirmed by Intel
Intel representatives just contacted
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
. 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.
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

We all know the clock speed's of Intel's chips have always been higher than AMD's. But as long as I've worked with computers, AMD's clock speeds in no way reflect their true power. OH wow 4ghz! Joy! I can make something melt metal!!1!one! What Intel needs to do is make some decent chips. Reviews against the X2 series and EE are ridiculous. (www.tomshardware.com, and others -- search google) The X2 series easily matches, if not does better than every single intel processor, even for a good $400-800 more with 1+ ghz freq above the AMD proc. The only thing intel's chips can beat AMD's are math processing (which is supposedly intel's only use?). Intel needs to work on a lot more for their chips to be worth more than crackers to me. I choose quality over quanity.

This may be true for Netburst, but these chips are netburst. A 2Ghz Conroe will be much faster than 3Ghz Netburst power.

"..clock speed's of Intel's chips have always been higher than AMD's. .."
Do you realize we are in June of 2006? Your BS is about 2 years old. Get with it, tell mom to get you a new calendar.
Also, you got it wrong. AMD has superior floating point. Geez
