Intel Demonstrates new 45nm Transistors and Conroe's Successor @ Anandtech
Today Intel is announcing a number of details on its 45nm process node, including official details on the first family of 45nm processors due out later this year.

For more details on the OCZ and Ultra 2000W power supplies, visit the Inquirer.
