Intel will be offering six versions of the Conroe processor at launch:

* E6700: 2.66 GHz / FSB 1066/ 4 MB shared L2 cache
* E6600: 2.40 GHz / FSB 1066/ 4 MB shared L2 cache
* E6400: 2.13 GHz / FSB 1066/ 2 MB shared L2 cache
* E6300: 1.86 GHz / FSB 1066/ 2 MB shared L2 cache
* E4200: 1.60 GHz / FSB 800/ 2 MB shared L2 cache

Pricing of the new architecture will be in line with previous processor introductions. The E6700 model will cost $530 at launch, the E6600 will be priced at $316, the E6400 at $241 and the E6300 at $209, sources said.

Conroes will post a thermal design power (TDP) of 65 watts

The Extreme Edition of the Conroe processor will operate at 3.33GHz, sport 1333MHz processor system bus and 4MB cache.
Hmmm... Sounds like the stock Conroe is going to blow away X2 overclocked...

Wow Intels really picking up here..AMD better watch out i think.

sure does look like a good chip. AMD might have to pull something out of there sleeve with the Socket M2 chips. The clash of the titans is upon us.

If intel and amd go head to head for too long with the new chips and constantly churn out newer more advanced chips every other year, the CPU is gunna hit its wall with in a decade. Those Diamond\\Biological\\Magnetic Processors want to hurry up.

Thats what they said about 1Ghz....

This "clash" is great for the end user... Prices drop and technology is introduced at record speeds.
