A few hardware sites who are attending IDF have managed to test out Intel’s new processor which is due out 3rd quarter – the dual core 65nm Conroe.

Conroe was actually reported on in 2004 and is Intel’s next generation pentium M for desktops. Early reports are that this chip is going to blow AMD out of the water. Here’s just one of the benchmark numbers reported by Anandtech:

F.E.A.R1280×1024, max effects, high quality.

  • Conroe 2.66GHz -?186fps
  • AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.8Ghz – 132fps

That’s not just impressive, that’s damn right scary! The chip on test was a 2.66Ghz part. When Conroe is released the high end part is rumoured to run at 2.8-3GHz.
