After using Conroe for some time now I feel it is safe to say that Intel has done a great job with Conroe. I usually don't mention specific people when it comes to launch day articles like this, but I believe gamers and enthusiasts around the world need to take a second and thank Bob Valentine and Jack Doweck, who were the lead architects for Conroe. These two are part of the Intel Israel Development Center (IDC) which was made famous for the Pentium M processor. The Intel Core processor family has really nothing to do with the previous pentium 4 family as only the prefetching was carried over from the Pentium 4 processors. Everything else found in Core 2 Duo processos is an evolution of "Yonah" (Core Duo), which was itself an improvement of Dothan and Banias all of which are from the mobile family of processors.
