I'm looking at some motherboards, Intel's web site says the new P965 chipset that supports core 2 duo also supports my lga775 socket (800 seriel bus) as well as the Core2 Duo 2.93 ghz (good for futre processor upgrade right?), but what is the actual socket for Core 2 duo? :whistling: :blink:
I'm missing something here. Probably a stupid question. :help:

Intel is producing new processors called the "Conroe" cpu and it will be released soon sometime. It runs on the current socket Lga 775 and they also call them core 2 duo.. Merom will be the mobile chip..



They are also making Intel Core2 Extreme processor at speeds of 2.93GHz in July, and a faster 3.2GHz version In the later quarters of this year but the extreme cpu's are expensive.



$530, $316, $224 and $183 for the E6700, E6600, E6400 and E6300, Intel conroe processors.

The intel conroe E6700 and the E6600 are the better chips both with 4MB cache.. The E6600 will be the best overall price and the best bang for you buck even competing with the amd prices and it is still faster than the amd fx-62 is..

I have posted other info on these new cpu's in this site if you want to learn more.

That's what I thought, like I said "stupid question".
If my current mobo has 775 socket, wouldn't that mean I don't have to replace it then (although I will for pci-e (gigabyte GA8s661fxm)), just install a core 2 duo processor?
(another stupid one, that I think I already know the answer to).

where sorry, i've overlooked it.
I've read everything intel has, and looked reports from Computex.

I've seen the 975x looks ok i suppose....
Gigabyte and Asus have released some new boards (note the copper heat pipes)
Here's one of two gigabyte: http://www.giga-byte...ame=GA-965P-DQ6

I can't see anything from intel on p965 though.
