Intel Core 2 Duo will be B-2 stepping

Posted on Friday, July 07 2006 @ 00:10:52 CEST by

HKEPC writes Intel will launch the B-2 stepping of Conroe as the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. There was a problem at full load with the earlier stepping which also occurs on the engineering samples. The retail version which will be released later this month will be much more stable.
Further, some of the manufacturers noticed that the released Intel P965 chipset has got the expected performance from Fast Memory Access technology, performing the same as i975X with DDR2 800. Intel has promised to fix the problem in the next P965 C-2 Stepping, and is expected to release in late July.

With regard to the reports on the weak performance of G965, sources indicate that it is because the driver hasn’t been finished. It’s not the stage to make any conclusion yet. Intel scheduled to add DVMT 256MB support in v14.21, releasing on July 13, Pixel Shader 3.0 and T&L support in v14.24, and Hardware Geometry (Vertex Shader 1.1/2.0) support in v14.26, where v14.26 is expected to be the final version. Besides, G965 has stepped in C-1 Stepping, yet there are still some problems to be fixed. We expected G965 would be releasing at C-2 Stepping. It’s very soon to the releasing day (July 23), but it seems the progress is still far away from expected. Whether G695 could release on time is a big question!
