Intel Conroe delayed by a couple of days?

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 28 2006 @ 17:45 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The Tech Report heard the Intel Conroe processor may be delayed to July 27, instead of being launched on July 23rd.
HKEPC doesn't say whether Intel's rumored barrage of price cuts has also been pushed back, but the introduction of new Pentium D 945 and 915 chips is reportedly still on-schedule for July 23.

After the July launches, HKEPC says the next chips on deck for Intel's desktop lineup are a Core 2 Duo E4200 and a Celeron D 360. Due to show up some time next quarter, the E4200 will reportedly be a trimmed-down cousin of the Core 2 Duo E6xxx series. It will apparently feature a slower 800 MHz front-side bus, and will be clocked at 1.6 GHz with 2 MB of cache. There's no word on price, but something under the low-end Core 2 Duo E6300's rumored $183 price tag would make sense.
