Sales of Intel Core 2 Duo chip seem slow take off

AT INTEL'S SPRING IDF last March, the chip giant allowed some hardware review sites early access to test its upcoming Conroe processor. Later in July when the NDAs expired a truck load of reviews hit the Net.

What was clear from both events was that Intel had hit gold with its Core 2 Duo processor. Unfortunately, more than a month has passed since the official reviews, and for some, Core 2 Duo chips are still very thin on the ground. When Newegg's top ten seller page was configured to show just processors, eight were from AMD.

What a stupid title. They aren't 'slow to take off', they just aren't freely available. A vast technical difference and poor journalism..

I think they took off too fast for Intel to catch up.

Yay, more Inquirer bull! Must not be anything real to write about so they have to go make some crap up out of half/partial truths.

I've watched ZZF, ClubtIT, and even Outpost receive inventory on various models, and flip through all it within a mere hour or two, not even mentioning other stores. ZZF restocked a half dozen times or more for some chips just to get picked clean repeatedly. Today's the first time I've seen them with standing stock of all model Core 2 Duos and the X6800. Anyone want a 3.5ghz Core 2 Duo for $192 shipped?
