Last month, Intel officially launched their new Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors with much fanfare. Based on the heavily hyped "Conroe" core and utilizing the modern "Core" microarchitecture, as opposed to the NetBurst microarchitecture employed in the Pentium 4 and Pentium D, Intel's Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors proved to offer huge gains over Intel's previous architecture. And as an added bonus, the new Core 2 processors ran much cooler and consumed less power than their NetBurst-based brethren, thanks to power-saving enhancements incorporated in Conroe.
