Intel Conroe Runs off i975X?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Will Intels Conroe be supported by Current motherboards Iam hearing fixed awansers about this... some ppl say YES! it will no doubt then others say, It will but only if the mother board has VRM (Voltage Regulator Module)

Iam looking at the P5WD2-E Premium.... Will this work with the Conroe CPU line Excluding the EE Conroe Edition? And how do u know for sure? Thanks

Nobody knows for sure yet, as all the details are still fuzzy, it is said that a new chipset(965) will be the standard for the conroe line though, but untill all the bugs and what nots are worked out the average Joe isnt going to know much. I guess the worst that could happen is spending another $200 on a new board, which in my opinion is a heck of a deal, compaired to other things Im into.

They have benched the Conroe... and it runs on the 975x... According to Anandtech, there should be no problemo.

The real answer is that no one knows for sure regardless what their opinions are as there are no real facts with evidence yet. For sure will be when the Conroe has been on retail release boards and shown to be working intensively (such as folding for a few months) with no problems.

Until then, it is all conjecture, possibilities with very little probabilities.

Intel released that the conroe will use the Version 2 of the 965... called Broadwater? I searched google for more info... someone posted some specs on cpu zone message board:

800MHz and 1066MHz FSB
Dual Channel DDR2/DDR3
PCI Express Graphics
8x PCI Express 1X
6x Serial ATA-II
8x USB 2.0
Gigabit Ethernet
High Definition Audio
802.11 Wireless LAN
Trusted Memory (TPM)
Serial Flash (SPI)
LaGrande Technology (Security)
400MHz Integrated Graphics Core (Shader Model 4.0?)

but basically the chipset isnt even close to being ready since no one even had a prototype on display at the show... what they were running on was a hacked version of a 975x i think.

"Additionally, Gelsinger announced that Conroe will now also be a part of Intel’s Professional Business Platform –– codenamed Averill –– available in the second–half of 2006. Averill will deliver world–class IT security and manageability capabilities for businesses through the Conroe dual–core processor along with a new chipset codenamed Broadwater, Intel® Virtualization Technology and the second generation of Intel® Active Management Technology."

It seems that "world–class IT security and manageability capabilities for businesses." Wouldnt be for the Home user...

Found this in a interview....

Source: http://www.arnnet.com.au/index.php/i...fpid;399285820

Dated 26/08/2005

"General manager for digital office platforms at Intel, Gregory Bryant, said Conroe would work with the chipsets designed for Presler and would be able to take advantage of new technologies such as virtualisation and Intel's Active Management Technology (AMT) right away"

Altho I have no idea if anything has changed sence then.. but he sure would look dumb 5 months after he made this statement. Dose the General manager for digital office platforms at Intel Know what hes talkin about?


And I find it odd that Review sites say that the i975X is not compatable with the Conore CPU, even after bios updates. But The CPU's Hasnt been released yet why would they Release a BIOS update to a CPU that hasnt been released..


And as Far as "VRM" Goes Wouldnt a Bios update run off a Asus board seeing as my current mobo goes all the way down to 1.1volts and increses voltage based on the CPU's Needs Via

"AI Quiet With PCs serving as the entertainment centerpiece and playing a bigger role in our lives, quiet operation is in high demand. No one wants to hear the cooling fan spinning when watching a movie or listening to music. The ASUS AI Quiet function dynamically controls CPU speed and reduces temperature and fan speeds when peace and quiet are what you desire." ..

And or Ai NOS

Just a Thought..

If they can hack a 975X and make the Conroe work, then it isn't any hardware issue. It they can make it work with the 975X then we can too!

Im sure they'll have a BIOS UPDATE for it if it doesnt support it already.

Wow, Conroe keeps looking better and better. Is it true that it supports ddr3 memory?

975 boards require just a BIOS flash to support the new chip
http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2006/03..._creek_conroe/ Conroe will be available on the current LGA775 socket - meaning that you can buy a system today that will support it, without being forced into an upgrade. It will support 975 boards, which today are high-end but which will filter downwards in price.
