Q1 2006 will see the launch of regular single and dual core Preslers. Difference between 65nm produced Pentium D and Extreme Edition versions are the 800 MHz FSB on the former and 1066 MHz FSB on the latter. Desktop Preslers will be known as Pentium D 920, 930, 940 and 950. All Preslers support iAMD64, Virtualization Technology and La Grande architecture, as a part of grand TCPA scheme. For La Grande to work, you need a TCPA chip on the mobo, so you're safe until you get a TCPA-chipped' mobo. The Presler core should hold the candle until Conroe hits the big scene somewhere during back-to-school period.
