Both of these are coming out summerish, and are almost entirely speculation. I wouldn't hold your breath. A current AMD dual core setup isn't a bad buy.

Are conroe cores gonna be compatible with s775 boards?

if so i think ill just go with an intel CPU on a s775 board and use that until conroe comes out so i dont have to upgrade the mobo, possibly RAM with DDR2, and aftermarket CPU cooler when conroe cores come out in a few months.

Seriously....we need details on these Conroes. I want to know what kind of price/performance corelation will they have with AMD? Will they sell something in the 300s that will beat a 2.9GHz AMD (single core)

I di a search on the chipset on the board that anandtech tested the conroe's with and it said it was s775 so im pretty sure it is.
