It's not certain yet, but just as I predicted, news reports are coming out that Intel will paper launch a few Conroes in July, but it will not really be available until September.

"We benchmark in a range of applications and games such as Doom 3, Quake 4 and F.E.A.R. to give you an idea of how Intel's next generation CPU will perform. Apparently, Intel is set to delay the release of the processors into the channel until September, so now you may have to wait a little longer for what we really feel is going to be a CPU design for Intel which will really change the industry and what gamers consider as the CPU of choice. AMD Athlon processors have clearly been the CPU of choice for gamers for many years now, but will this change soon?"

As always, Intel tosses consumers a head fake to make them put off purchases and then strings them along month after month, promising it will be affordable soon. Also, if you do see a Conroe in the wild before September, be prepared to pay substantially over list price.

I wonder what "new processors" they are referring to in the below link. Hint. It starts with a "C".
http://www.digitimes.com/systems/a20060613PB208.html

Lastly, I also hear an unconfirmed, unconfirmed report that Intel will make Core 2's both with and without EM64T or 64bit support, so keep your eyes open to dispel or confirm this one. Maybe implementing 64bits into their processors is still giving them fits.

AMD has done something similiar with AM2. They've "paper" launched all their processors. MOST of them are available, however, the very high end processors (FX-62, and high level X2's) are hard to come by.

This is different from what Intel is doing, Intel is ONLY paper launching ALL of the their processors, where at least AMD is delivering there low-end and mid-range products.

I would consider a Conroe without 64-bit support to be just plain stupid!

Regardless, it is going to be a VERY interesting year with Conroe coming, K8L and Vista just around the corner.
June 13, 2006 4:39:24 PM

If this is true, it'll be quite a disappointment.
June 13, 2006 4:52:15 PM

Wow. Talk about grabing at straws. First of all, I there's been four threads on this. The only new part is that Acer news, but they make laptops. They're referring to the Merom, which comes out in August anyway.

Until the official launch, no one knows. The rumor mill is always at work. I'm not going to say Intel is not going to delay the lauch, but this is useless speculation. Criticize Intel if they don't make the launch, not criticize them for "well, they maybe won't make it according to a couple of rumor-mill sources."

Oh noes! Intel r teh paparlunchz0r! OMG! Both companies do paper launches, don't give me your horseshi7. If AMD were to do the same thing would you make a thread about it? Doubtful, to say the least. That combined with your rediculous biasedness and bad credibility makes this story less believeable.
June 13, 2006 5:13:01 PM

Also there is a big difference in a paper launch of all of your CPUs vs. just your ultra high end ones.

Actually, AMD has been pretty decent. There were a few chips available at the get-go, and within a week or so, stores had pretty much the full line from Sempron to A64 to X2 to FX. That's pretty reasonable to expect a week or two for the sites to have all of the chips in quantity. A month or two? That's excessive.
June 13, 2006 5:53:56 PM

At a Computex event today, Intel officially unveiled its 965 Express chipset (the P965, codenamed 'Broadwater') for use with its forthcoming line of Core 2 Duo processors. The company confirmed the accelerated launch schedule for the Core 2 rollout: Woodcrest (a Xeon replacement) in June, Conroe (for desktops) in July, and Merom (for laptops) in August. There's also an ultra low voltage Merom in the works for use in very thin portables from Dell and HP.

Are you slow? Do you think Intel is sitting there giving press meetings about the junk people put online?! that site put the same news that the launch is delayed and Intel representative denied. They already made a press release that the launch date is at the end of July . Stop making a fool out of yourself.

The HORDE is always looking delay news to keep people buying AMD. After Conroe launch AMD will fight with celeron in cheap Dell machines.
Intel is launching Cedar Mill (512kb Cache) celerons very cheap (I have found and bought one Celeron D 352 at 50$ new on eBay)
June 13, 2006 6:39:58 PM

I fully expected this to happen but not for the same reasons you think. The Core 2 Duo's are going to be one hot chip. As with any launch of a new product Dell and companies like Dell will get their stock first before retail chips hit the market for regular consumers. I do believe however you will still see a few chips around July 23 but just in short supply. I know that most AMD fans hoped to hold on to the performance lead for a little while longer but it simply is not to be.

Finding an obscure website that claims Conroe is delayed until September, even though every reputable website and Intel themselves have said Conore is right on schedule?

Even though Woodcrest is now officially launching on June 26th, exactly on time?

humm... let's see, M$ said Vista was going to hit the market in 2005. wait, they changed it, to be in the mid 2006. hold on, they changed it again, to the end of 2006. wait, i just got the word from some sources that Vista is going to launch in 1Q of 2007, without some of the best features proclaimed by M$.

that's weird, all i see from you is bashing intel. why don't you bash M$ for a change?

M$ can get away with that because they really do have a monopoly.
