    Well there goes Phenom's supposed lead down the toilet.. I wonder if Penryn will use Socket775, it'd be nice being able to upgrade just the CPU

    Yes, it is a 775 system, and i think that a few nforce 6 boards are 45nm tech compatible, with just a bios update.

    If someone has any other info to prove im right or wrong, just shoot me:p

    Current P35 motherboards claim support for upcoming Penryn processors, so they should be socket 775 :)

    Yep, Yorkfield and Wolfdale (the desktop versions of Penryn) are both LGA775 :)

    FTA: "High-k gates use halnium-based material..."

    I believe you meant hafnium, chemical symbol Hf. (See? College is good for something.)

    I'm so proud you caught a typo. :rolleyes: What's the chemical symbol for "overeager pedantic git"?

    (typo is now fixed, for those of you straining your eyes to find it)

    Heh, you can't measure it with anything that requires light. The shortest wavelength in the visible spectrum is just over 400nm. You need an SEM (or something that uses that general area of microscopy) to see in that range.
