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.

PS: i'm also on XP, *Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS and no problems with speed, no HDD doing something all the time, no full 2G memory. tried server 2008 as desktop os and i have to say i like it more compared to vista

I think you are full of crap and read an article about Vista over a year and a half ago and that is what you are using for your "experience" on the OS.

I use ultimate 32 and my hard drive is not churning away all the time.

You must be lying or deaf then. I have a new machine running Vista, I'm sitting next to it as I type this post. Nothing is running on the machine but my browser, but it is pinging on the hard drive about once every second or two. Very annoying.

I use OS X and Linux mostly, FreeBSD and OpenBSD on some servers I run, and Vista when I'm on my wife's computer. Vista is by far the lardiest of the systems. It just can't seem to get its fat butt going.
