Wow! With Adobe annoucing CS6 and the Spectrum celebrating it's 30th birthday it seems to be the day to release good news, and not to miss out, Intel have launched its new Ivy Bridge processors: BBC News - Intel's Ivy Bridge chips launch using '3D transistors'

From the BBC article
Intel is launching its Ivy Bridge family of processors - the first to feature what it describes as a "3D transistor".
The American firm says the innovation allows it to offer more computational power while using less energy.
The initial release includes 13 quad-core processors, most of which will be targeted at desktop computers.
Further dual core processors, suitable for ultrabooks - thin laptops - will be announced "later this spring".
Intel and PC manufacturers expect the release to drive a wave of new sales.
Actually, this is good news as I was looking at upgrading my HTPC, and now I don't have to worry about getting an i5 and watching it get superceded almost instantly!
