Intel Moves Up Conroe Launch Date
The Inquirer is reporting that Intel has changed the launch date for Conroe once again. This time moving it up to the 14th of July, just over a week from now. This comes as good news to those of us eagerly awaiting Intel's latest offering.
Conroe, the code name for the desktop variant of the upcoming Intel Core 2 Duo, is Intel's 8th generation x86 processor architecture. It will replace the aging NetBurst architecture, which has powered Intel's processors since the turn of the century. The Core 2 Duo will also mark the retirement of the Pentium brand name, which has represented Intel's processors since 1993.
The Inquirer goes on to speculate about Intel's motivation for the move.
