We get a little sniff of what comes after Penryn as far as Intel are concerned. Bearing in mind that Penryn is purely a shrink/derivative of the 65nm Core microarchitecture to 45nm, Nehalem appears to be where it's at.

Intel today revealed some details on their 45nm Nehalem processors but we will tell you more later about Nehalem-based desktop processors that is not discussed during the press briefing. Here's what we understand from the briefing :  1. Nehalem is on native 45nm Hi-K and is on track for 2008 release
2. 4-issue Core Architecture
3. On-die memory controller (DDR3 supported)
4. CSI or P2P serial interconnects
5. Simultaneous multi-threading (we told you before about MTT)
6. Highly scalable architecture (1 core/2 threads to 8+ cores/16+ threads)
7. Optional Integrated Graphics (probably on multi-chip package)
8. Multi-level shared cache (probably L2 shared and L3 shared)

Vista by default has some load balancing tech that although in large infrastructures will give the servers some respite from an avalanche of users requesting data is not really required for a home network where there may be less than 10 users per server.

I needed to do the following steps to get my network transfers to/from our torrent/media server to 9MB/s (opposed to 5)

Go to Start and in the search box type:
cmd [return]

In the commandline that appears enter:
netsh interface tcp show global [return]

look @ the congestion control provider if its not disabled then type:
netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled [return]

personally the best solution would not be to use vista but i require a driver 'feature' for my sound chip only present in vista (crosover freq adjustment)
