Any specific news on when we can expect new Core 2 processors from Intel?

    I'm thinking about building a second PC. My current is a Core2 2.67ghz.
    If I'm building new I always think about upgrading but the extreme
    processors are a lot more for little gain in performance currently.
    Thought I'd see what was coming out and when.

    Thanks

    Core 2 Quad is already out. There will be 45 nm Intel CPUs by fall.

    The Penryn 45nm processors are due in the 2nd half of the year.

    A quick check should show that the new 45nm core2 will be out in the
    fall, faster and lower power, and supposedly able to run in existing
    boards with a BIOS upgrade. I would not bet the ranch on that, if you
    want one waiting for a board verified to work is probably best.

    I wouldn't invest in any of the extreme CPUs, they will be obsolete in
    six months.

    Here's a present, I found the link:

    Unsigned numbers may not be negative. However, unsigned numbers may be
    less than zero for sufficiently large values of zero.
