Core 2 Duo will debut this summer, replacing Conroe and Merom code names.
Intel will sell its new generation of 65-nanometer desktop and laptop chips under the brand name Core 2 Duo when it launches them this summer, the company says. Intel plans to launch its desktop chip, code-named Conroe, in July and its laptop chip, code-named Merom, in August.
"You could kind of say we're core crazy," company spokesperson Bill Kircos explains. "It's a way of saying 'Hey, this isn't your grandfather's PC'."
