Here Comes "Conroe"

Intel is set to announce its long awaited Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors tonight, July 13th, at midnight. Initially shown at the Intel Developer Forum 2006, Intel's Conroe was shown beating out AMD's fastest processors from high end Athlon 64 X2's to the gaming and enthusiast oriented Athlon 64 FX. Intel also previously launched the Core 2 architecture based Woodcrest Xeon 5110, 5120, 5130, 5140, 5150 and 5160 models. With the new Core 2 architecture Intel is moving away from the megahertz war and moving towards higher instructions-per-clock performance and improved power efficiency instead.

OMG, I really hope from what I've heard, that these processors will be compatible with the LGA775 socket, 'cause I'll TEAR OUT my Pentium 4 processor for a new Core 2 Duo processor...

I just don't see dual processors at all practical. We can't even find a use for 64 bit processors.

why should i buy it, can intel please tell me if i want to buy this or should i care at all. intel pentium 4 is doing me fine so who cares about this. Dual core also does not make gaming better but its better for more stuff on the screen, like photoshop, studioMax3D, fireworks, flash and dreamweaver etc etc.
