Dailytech : Intel "Conroe-L" Details Unveiled

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Quote:
DailyTech has received Intel roadmaps that outline Intel’s value desktop products. New to Intel’s value desktop lineup will be Conroe-L based processors. Unlike Intel’s Core 2 Duo Conroe products, the new Conroe-L processors will not carry the Core nomenclature. Instead Intel is resuscitating the Pentium and Celeron brands for Conroe-L based products.

Conroe-L?? Is that Conroe Light? LOL

This is weird, it says they are single core, 800FSB 1MB L2 CPUs........and they are not Core CPUs........so, they are canceling the Pentium 4 and Pentium D lines and bringing these out? What's the difference? If they are not Core, are they Netburst still? No hyperthreading support, sounds like the same humdrum netburst CPUs. They carry the "E" designator, so they must have changed the power draw at least I guess.......

It would be a shame to waste such a well known marketing product as the PENTIUM name. I think actualy the reason the Pentium brand fell in the mainstream/value segment is the fact that Pentium4/D wasn't exactly a top performer, so it would have been a mistake from Intel to brand the Conroe as Pentium5.
Still, I'm somewhat puzzeled how 3 CPU brand are going to coexist in the desktop market because at a certain point I'm sure there's going to appear competition between Intel's own brands. For ex if we have Celeron from 40$ to 85$, Pentium 90$-130$ and Core 140$ - 999$ it gets far too confusing for the average Joe. How would we know what's best: a 85$ celly or a 90$ pentium?

Well, it's been a long day, guess I'll have to give this a little thaught.

*EDIT: Thumper: They are Core2 Solo CPUs (single core conroe), the pentiums are going to have 800FSB 2Mb L2 cache, and the cellys 533FSB and 512L2 cache. As far as I can see that's the only difference. Maybe they'll disable VT too...

I guess the single core Conroe is getting named Pentium 5 or something then.

not according to that article there aren't....

Quote:
All Pentium E1000 series processors will have an 800 MHz front-side bus with 1MB of L2 cache.
I guess you could read that they are Core based CPUs, just that Intel will not be CALLING them Core CPUs (the term nomenclature is ambigious in this useage.)

However, following the link for the Conroe-L in that article.

Quote:
Intel documentation claims that Conroe-L is not part of the immediate Core 2 family processors, but part of an "extended family" instead.

The main difference between Conroe-L and the rest of the Conroe family, according to older Intel roadmaps, is the fact that Conroe-L will only be a single core processor. Whether or not this means one core has been disabled is not specified yet,
No where does it say these are Core 2 Solos.......but it does appear to direct say they are not part of the Core 2 family, so repackaged Solo's is unlikely I would think.

They state that there will be no VT in these CPUs in this article.

Dude...nomenclature means name lmao...

They don't have the same name, but still the same "Core" architecture.

So they'll be single core Conroe's...Sounds like a good OC'ing chip for mid-range users to me

Even a Core 2 Duo is a souped up Pentium Pro.
