Intel 'Conroe' pricing leaks out

Intel 'Conroe' pricing leaks out
Freshly leaked Pentium D pricing information has added weight to claims that Intel will ship the next model in the series, the 960, at the end of this month before slashing prices in Q3 when its next-generation architecture 'Conroe' processor debuts.

Pentium D pricing data provided by DailyTech confirms earlier reports that the 960 will cost $533 at launch on 30 April before falling to $316 in Q3 when Conroe launches. Current Pentium D 9xx chips will see their prices cut on 23 April, as expected.

Four Conroe chips will ship initially: the E6300, E6400, E6600 and E6700, following Intel's new processor numbering scheme, introduced when the Core Duo mobile processor family arrived earlier this year. The four dual-core Conroes are clocked at 1.86, 2.13, 2.40 and 2.67GHz, respectively, run on a 1066MHz frontside bus and contain 4MB of cache shared between the two cores.

The CPUs will be priced at $209, $244, $316 and $530, respectively, at launch, the new report claims. At the same time, Intel will debut the VT-less Pentium D 925 at $178. In addition to the 960's price reduction to $316, the 950 will come down to $241 and the 940 to $209. Intel has already indicated it intends to phase out the 930 and 920.

so Intels Dual core come Conroe will be cheaper, run as cool, and have better performance. Hmm, no need to change to AMD this round. Intel has done some good things for us college students with their prices

The best Conroe chip is only freakin 530 bucks???

This is amazing since the FX60 is about a 1000 bucks!~!

Conroe owns the FX60 hard so.... Will we see incredible price drops on the FX series?

I'm sure AMD will align their prices when the "F" series processors come out here shortly.

I dont know how much finger crossnig they are doing. AM2 is a nice socket its going to give use a good 5-10% performance improvement over 939 from the memory bandwidth alone (overclockers that is) but what is not happening is the conversion over to 65nm... AMD just cant get enough production ramped up to make a difference. You wont see anything thats a really good overclocker until maybe 2007 form AMD at best you will just get a speed bump and performance bump.

Please note that these are not the "Official" price lists from Intel. I do think these are accuurate, however.

I was looking to AM2 for my next rig but after seeing the early Conroe performance I am all about intel. AM2 does not seem to be able to compete with Conroe at this time.
