    Intel produced the latest “tick” (or die shrink) on our “tick-tock” release schedule with the Intel® 3rdGeneration Core Processors. Code named “Ivy Bridge,” this next generation brought us to a 22nm manufacturing process. Newer processors perform as well or better than previous models, with lower power requirements and better cooling. In addition to the thermal and performance improvements, our Intel 3rd Generation Core Processors brings an updated version of integrated Intel HD Graphics that is compatible with DirectX 11, improving intensive 3D experience and allowing the user to view 1080p HD video smoothly.

    This is what I had in mind as I've seen the release of 3rd Gen Core and few months or a year from now they will release Windows 8. Now brand companies need to work on touch screen monitors/laptops to tie up the functions of the new OS.
