Soon Intel's first 45nm CPUs will be available but the firm is also working hard on the next generation - Nehalem.

Nehalem will brings lots of new features including a DDR3 memory controller and integrated graphics and that's one of the reasons why LGA775 will no longer cut it. According to some rumours Intel will have to introduce a new socket called LGA1366.

The first Nehalem desktop processors are expected in the fourth quarter of 2008.
