Hmm, you guys are talking about the cell processor technology right? It is indeed an interesting concept, which you can read about here.

The process size doesn't have much of any effect on performance so don't be worried if you have 130nm or 90nm cores. It basically just leads to lower power consumption and less heat dissipation. It's basically the same with the Newcastle and Winchester cores, you won't see much of a performance difference (if any) between them, just the temperature difference.

2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB

it's just you can fit millions more transistors in the same area with smaller sizes which ultimately leads to faster processors better performance and whatnot.

Also gaara, I was referring more to that cross latch bar technology or whatever, someone just reposted that article not too long ago
