I've always had a strong interest in transistors since studying them at uni so it's good to keep up-to-date!!
When do you reckon these new chips will start shipping? 2h07?

I had hoped that all that HT nonsense was dead.

Just speculation here but if Intel were to underclock and undervolt these then go into the mini-ITX market at a performance level at least equal to Via's best could they make it passively cooled? - I'm not expecting an answer but wondering how fast they could go with passive cooling. (I still remember a time before CPUs even had heat sinks)
