What a convenient coincidence..."Conroe" and WWDC

Dan Pourhadi

Just wanted to point something out, folks: Today, Intel took the wraps off several new "Core"-based processors, including Merom (mobile), Conroe (desktop), and Woodcrest (server).

Conroe, which is said "to offer 40% more performance at 40% less power than the Pentium D 950," is expected in the second-half of 2006. And, conveniently, Apple today announced that WWDC 2006 will take place in August...making it a perfect launching ground for a Conroe-based PowerMac (Mac Pro?).

My, my. How things just sort of fall in place.

(More new-processor details at MacRumors.)
