ARM Holdings plc, the licensor of processors and related intellectual property, has tipped sparse details of plans for a next-generation processor to follow on to the three processor cores that comprise the Cortex series. According to the source, the processor will remain with the current instruction set architecture as Cortex processors and it would take about 18 months for the design to complete and come to silicon.

In January 2006 Warren East, chief executive officer of ARM, hinted that a multiprocessing version of one of ARMs Cortex series processors could be in design. Cortex is the follow-on processor range to the ARM11 series of cores, which includes the ARM11 MPcore, a four-way SMP implementation of the ARM11 processor core. However, since then little has been heard about a multiprocessing Cortex processor.

Cool :)

I ordered some Speedlink Medusa's yesterday.
Was looking at the Zalman's, but the Medusa's seemed more finished and I liked the idea of the amp/pass-thru.

While the meds are better, you pay for it. The zalmans are a quality piece of kit.

I think that's why I was looking at the Zalmans :) because they seemed quite cheap (£35) but I got the medusa's with amp etc for £41 inc postage.

Did you enter their raffle?

If you already bought a set i think they reimburse you for their cost.

Is that not a type of pyramid scheme?

Basically everyone (25 people) pays $5 for a 1 in 25 chance to win a set.

I didnt see anywhere that said limited to USA residents ..

All of the people who have won were in the USA :(
Not sure if it is USA only, but it is on the USA site. Couldn't find it on the UK one.

You pay $5 and have a 1/25 chance of winning? (4%?)

Seems a bit of a pyramid thing, I'm surprised they can do that, thought most pyramid schemes online were outlawed?

we seem to be looking at this differently, to me its worth it to pay $5 for a 1 in 25 chance at the headphones.

They also state if you have already bought the home edition set and you win they will refund $125 (25 X $5) to your acct.

A pyramid scheme suggests fraud, This looks like they are being very honest and upfront and giving those of us that cant pay the full price to pay a chance to win them instead.
