Default Newegg upgraded it's search system :)

Go to Newegg and type in a name of a generic item. "7800GTX" or "Athlon 64" for example.

Yeah, I don't notice anything really different?

I do notice the difference when going through the categories, the advanced search is now different.

good thing, their search system sucked before. it would be easier to go to google, or search yourself for your product instead of using neweggs search. neweggs search often left out products.

That's because they weren't all categorized correctly. They'd leave out minor details on one part and add it on another similar part, and in some searches because of that it wouldn't bring up the item. They need to do some remodeling on their site and that should fix the problem.
