NinjaKicks writes "Intel has decided to make public
details of their new 45nm manufacturing
process and also has broken news that next-gen Penryn core processors are
running various versions of Windows and Vista successfully. Penryn will offer a host of core tweaks over Conroe, larger cache sizes, and SSE4 support. Also, although clock speeds
will be increased, processors based on Penryn should fall within the same
thermal power range as Conroe. Word is Penryn will also be compatible with some
of the existing motherboards on the market while others will need either a BIOS
update or perhaps other board-level changes."
I judge a religion as being good or bad based on whether its adherents
become better people as a result of practicing it.
