FUD Zilla received word that Intel's next-gen 32nm Sandy Bridge notebook architecture will be 22 percent smaller than current 32nm Westmere chips.
This is quite a success and this means that Sandy Bridge should achieve higher clocks at the same TDP values, which can imply that the next generation will be even faster. The cost of materials and platforms will shrink due to the smaller size of the CPU.

Intel says that its Sandy Bridge package is 22 percent reduced in x,y and z axis and new Intel AVX instructions and improved battery life will also find its way in the new and yet smaller packaging.
