Floating Body Cells (FBC) are the new candidates for cache SRAM memory, as well new Strain-Enhanced Transistors for 45nm products.
The highly anticipated Phenom B3 stepping processors are here with slightly faster clocks and no TLB erratum. How does the new stepping overclock? How does it compare to other CPUs around the same price? We dive in to find out.
We test the latest 45nm Intel Core 2 Duo "Wolfdale" E8500, E8400 and E8200 processors to see how they compare to other popular, sub £200 CPUs from Intel's 65nm Core 2 line and AMD's Athlon X2 and Phenom lines.

On one hand Intel offers an ultra low power, ultra tiny 45nm single core processor, on the other a 2Bn transistor quad core behemoth with 30MB of on-die cache!
Eight cores, tri-channel DDR3, lots of cache and an IGP - it's all happening for Nehalem it seems. But if you want SLI, Intel might make you pay more...
HKEPC has managed to get its hands on a low-end 45nm Wolfdale processor and has revealed some interesting info on the upcoming Penryn processor family.
Sandtiger is the new core name for the Opteron AMD intends to arrive in 2009. We also get some more details on the 45nm Shanghai core as well.
Intel is to keep their lowest Core 2 CPU, the E2140 a little longer and further drop the price! Bargain of the year? Quite possibly.
The hard drive is probably one of the most overlooked components in a modern PC. Capacities have skyrocketed and new technologies have arrived. We debunk the marketing and have a look at what it all means to you.
Yesterday morning, AMD announced what is probably its final member of the K8 family. The Athlon 64 X2 6000+ is AMD's first socket AM2 processor to break through the 3GHz barrier. In the wake of AMD's latest round of price cuts, the X2 6000+ has an attractive price, but does that make it a good buy?
IBM has taken a step out of traditional chip design and committed to putting some DRAM right on the die itself. For games and multitasking, this could be just what the doctor ordered.
Weeks ahead of its official launch, AMD's last high-end Athlon 64 X2 processor has shown up on Newegg in the US.
Within hours of each other last night, both Seagate and Hitachi announced plans for their first 1TB hard drives, which will ship in the first half of this year. It looks like Hitachi may well be the first to ship drives to the public though.
In the past, external storage has been limited by the speed of the interface and this has put many users off the idea of an external storage device. We have a look at one of Seagate's first eSATA drives on the market to find out whether speed is no longer an issue.
Just last week, Intel released its Core 2 Duo processors with a bang. This week, Chief Executive Paul Otellini says that quad-core will be with us by the end of this year. With all of the moving and shaking, Tim Smalley looks down the road ahead.
Today, Intel has officially unveiled its eagerly-anticipated Core 2 Duo product line up based on the Conroe processor. We have an in-depth look at the performance of the Core 2 Duo E6400, E6600, E6700 and Core 2 Extreme X6800. Are the processors really as good as the previews said?
Rumours coming from Taiwan suggest that AMD is ready to introduce a cut-cache Athlon 64 X2 3600+ to help it combat Intel's aggressive dual core drive.
What's faster than an AMD Athlon FX-60? Well, an Intel Core Duo overclocked on a fantastic AOpen board based on the 975X chipset. We get to grips with Intel's portable processing powerhouse in a desktop board and contemplate - is this a sign of things to come?
