Conroe coming sooner than you think

So it seems like PC gamers looking for a massive leap in CPU performance won't have to wait quite as long as they might have thought. It seems that both CPU companies are pushing hard to woo new buyers, as we revealed earlier today that AMD will be launching its AM2 platform ahead of schedule, on May 23

Smart move, in the past we have seen all sides inflate benches, Intel, AMD ATi and nVidia. It seems like it will be a nice chip but I want some real world tests from non-bias reviewers.

It doesn't actually say when it's going to be released. They said that 23 May will be the release date of AM2 not Conroe.
