Intel Intel unveiled a power gate feature incorporating a "turbo" mode for its upcoming Nehalem family of processors. With the turbo mode, in a situation where not all the cores are necessary for a particular workload, the ones that are idle will be turned off and power is channeled to the cores that are active, making them more efficient. Intel also showcased the Nehalem-EX for the expandable server market, which consists of eight-core processors on a single die.

remember those "what intel gave us, microsoft took from us" articles? ;)

It doesn't work like that. It's all about creating new needs. You want to sell your new products. This is where Vista comes in handy. I'll hazard a guess: these new CPUs are designed to work with Windows 7.
