    I'm guessing it's gonna be an iMac revision.

    Uh, someone must have edited it, as now it reads:



    "The first Intel Core 2 Duo processor core, codenamed Conroe, is scheduled to be released on 27 July 2006 for desktops, replacing the Pentium 4 and Pentium D. "

    Yup! Looks like it was a false rumor ...

    Ignorant question, sorry, but does conroe support 64 bit? I'm assuming it's not and that just woodcrest is. Anyone?

    Merom, Conroe and Woodcrest all support EM64T.

    Good news. But am I right in assuming this will not be that relevant until leopard is released?

    Tiger supports 64 bit Apps, but is not itself 64-bit. So there would be some benefit, but only for a program optimized for not just an Intel Mac, but a 64-bit one.

    Tiger has no support for EM64T/AMD64/X64 executables at all.

    Why would it matter? Honestly.

    Apparently it doesn't matter. That's why I posted saying "ignorant question"

    That's not an ignorant question at all. 64-bit has very tangible benefits. Extra registers and the ability of apps to utilize more than 4GB of RAM. All things considered I'd like a 64-bit capable cpu if I could get one.

    But leopard should support EM64T at the least.

    A better question would be if Leopard is 64 bit, will it support our 32 bit processors without having a 32 bit OS and a 64 bit OS version like MS does with Win 32 and Win 64?

    Yes, because the bundle and lipo/fat binary techniques allow Apple to combine as many different types of binaries into one bundle as they feel like.



    /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib, for example, currently holds three architectures all in one file: ppc64 (64-bit PowerPC 970), i386 (Intel) and ppc (32-bit generic PowerPC).
