Intel to release new Conroe stepping

Problems to be solved by step two
Fri Jul 07 2006, 10:47
WEB site HKEPC reports that Intel is likely to release a B-2 stepping of its forthcoming Conroe processor.

These desktop chips will be branded as Core 2 Duo chips.

The web site said Intel has encountered several problems that made it decide to do a further stepping. Most of the problems are solved in Stepping B-2 - it advises buyers to beware of engineering samples up for sale on the wibbly wobbly web. This presumably also goes for reviews of Conroe using engineering samples, too. µ
