Probably going to select few people that are going to benchmark and test against amd's and get people hyped even more!

15 processors were sent to reviewers for reviewing to be released on June 4th. On July 23rd, ALL of them come out, not 5. The 2.93GHz XE also comes out on July 23rd.

Conroe = Core 2 Duo
Conroe is the core name of the Core 2 Duo desktop version. With Merom being the laptop version of it.

Not any more. They were just rumors. Probably will see that later this year, or earlier next year.
