AMD has two counters to Conroe
The FX-62 parts seem to be taking not much more than 100W, so with a slight voltage bump, you could get to 3.0GHz with 3.2 being a stretch if you cherry pick. That would put an FX-62++ up against a 2.97/1066 XE, will it be enough? Will Lassie get home in time to tell mommy that Timmy fell down he well?
Either way, the war goes on, in 1S, Intel put the stake in the ground, time for AMD to react. A few years ago, when we announced the P4EE for Intel, I had a meeting with AMD a few hours later. I asked the assempled reps what they thought of the new Intel gaming chip. The person sitting in the chair looked up and with a really unconcerned look on his face said 'So?' The next three or so years pointed out that he was correct.

there is a difference wheter you got a 1000+ $ chip being announced and wheter you got a pwning 300 $ low power consumption, low heat, great perfomance, great clocking chip on the way

Yeah it goes on like this:
Now I am getting the same attitude from Intel. One person there, when asked about the new, hypothetical AMD parts responded "If this is true - then we expect them to react to Core, but this seems a bit like a Hail Mary. We hear there will only be hundreds to a couple of thousand of chips total. We’re welcoming the other millions of gamers to the ultimate processor for these ultimate PC buyers: Conroe." Strangely, the same attitude on the other side of the fence.

I could imagine tough just from the profit view it might be good to have a very scarce chip where all the superclocking chips can be used with high margins instead of being wasted as lowend chips.
