Nehalems shipping next month!

If that headline doesn’t get excited, may as well move on to the next story. Nothing to see here, folks! Except for a bad-ass processor that’s about to drop on November 17. If you’ve been following the Nehalem story, you know that it’s Intel’s microarchitecture “tock” to the 45nm process Penryn “tick.” You may have heard it referred to as “Core i7” as well.

Basically, it means you’re going to be getting the most out of the silicon starting next month, or more likely early next year, since the ones coming out next month are super high-end, not really for end users like you and me. Still, it’s time to start checking under those cushions for spare nickels, because upgrade time cometh! [via Expreview and ZDNet]
