DailyTech reminds us Intel will launch its next-generation processor architecture on July 23, while AMD will unveil its Socket F on July 11.
Conroe, now officially known as Core 2 Duo for desktops, is officially scheduled to launch on July 23. Intel has already stated that the company plans for Conroe to account for 40% of its desktop sales by Q1'07 -- a massive undertaking for a completely new architecture. The pricing for July 23 on Conroe is still exactly as we had published back in April. Intel allowed some benchmarks of Conroe earlier this year, with reasonably favorable results.
