Intel is lining up the fourth factory that will be producing the companies new 45 nm processor generation, which is scheduled to go into mass production in the second half of this year.

Fab 11X in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, currently produces 90 nm processors and chipsets and will be retrofitted to build Intel's upcoming 45 nm processors in volume. The company said that it will cost between $1 and $1.5 billion to retool the fab, which brings Intel's total 45 nm production investment to about $8 billion, excluding the capacity in the development fab D1D in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Intel's first 45 nm processors will be built on the "Penryn" core, which will be offered in mobile, desktop and server/workstation flavors as dual-core and multi-die quad-core processors.

I used to have a Bois Saviour fitted to my last DFI mobo (lanparty NF2 Ultra B) and it was a really great piece of kit. I can't seem to find them anymore:mad: Do they still make them? If so does anyone stock them in UK? I'm looking for one to fit to my DFI CFX3200

I remember seeing them ages ago.

Not sure how usefull they are tho unless you are messing with custom BIOSes.

Ioss RD1-8X "2" - Bios Savior Backup Kit for Intel 8xx chipset ONLY with 2Mbit PLCC Flash Rom

Those things?

I don't think they are used much now as most mobo's have dual or even quad BIOS :confused:
