I'm still a little sceptical about Conroe. Intel said the same thing about the original skt423 Pentium 4's. Though at least the few things I've seen about the Conroe's are positive.

I don't have any major troubles with Intel, it used to be that AMD was for gaming and Intel was for multi-tasking, video editing and other similar applications.

AMD has started to overtake Intel now though, even though it's only by seconds. (Gaining 10 seconds during CloneDVD is not enough for me to throw away my whole system and buy all AMD stuff), so if Intel DOESN'T amaze with Conroe, I might consider switching in a few years when I ened a whiole new set up....


That said, I hear the talk from Intel on Conroe.....but I haven't seen any benchmarks yet.

I'll wait to see the from intel.......
