Judging from how Anandtech for a E6600 to 4.0Ghz on high-end air cooling, I'd say 3.5Ghz is guaranteed if you get one of the first batches.

The original release date was supposed to be July 27th. However, Anandtech is reporting that only the X6800 will be released on the 27th, the mainstream processors are going to be released on August 7th.

It does make a certain amount of sense, as they might be stocking up. Lower-end processors always sell more then the high-end anyways.

Sorry about the rockets, lol.

If the release date was one day later, I wouldn't be able to build a Conroe system. At least I can, if Newegg has it in stock on August 7th....

Yeah, it's kinda hard to realize there's a war going on when it's halfway around the world. But when it's in your backyard, It gets a lot worse.

Anandtech is the only one reporting it, but like I said, it does have a sort of merit to it.

Did you know that the E6300 (1.83) and E6400 (2.13) aren't "Conroe" specifically? They're a cut-down Conroe with less cache. Called Allendale. So, a lot of the AMD market is getting beaten by what are esentially next-gen Celerons. That's like getting knifed in Counter Strike: A rather humiliating defeat.

Haha.

Yea, knew that, but its just simpler to call the whole thing Conroe. It's wider-known too.

And those lower models fail to show anything LESS impressive *** per benches for their speeds. (right where they should be in reference to the real conroes). And they definetly are amazing chips. I am soooo excited to get one. They OC extremely well and can easily beat out the fx-60-62s. 1000+ dollar chips

Heck yes. I'd guess that even the E6300 could go blow for blow with a 4400+, if not more, at stock.
