Default X8000 News?

anyone hear of any conroe X8000 news? been trying to find possible release dates, specs etc. So far found that it's going to be 3.33GHz with 1333MHz FSB and possible 8MB cache. Released around November/December this year. Anyone else hear of anything?

I haven't but that thing will probably cost a fortune unless they plan to bring the others down in price.

maybe your getting names confused, cause when the kentsfield quad cores come out, there will most lickley be an extreme edition one clocked around 3.33ghz and it will have an 8mb(or more) cache.

If you go into SiSoft Sandra, and run the CPU tests, it shows you an option for -

Core 2 Quad X8600 2.4Ghz *and some other stuff*

Hopefully that helps? the X*600 would be in line with the E6600 that theyre both 2.4Ghz.

Nope it's gonna be a Conroe!

From wikipedia:

By the end of 2006 Intel plans to introduce the Core 2 Extreme X6900, which is slated to clock at 3.2 GHz, while keeping the same FSB speed, L2 cache size, socket, and TDP.

According to leaked info, Intel is to release another Conroe XE in the 4th quarter of 2006, model X8000 with 3.33 GHz and 1333 MHz FSB QDR.
A bunch of forums have been talking about it. This is the cpu I would like to get if it isn't too much.
