Now it looks like Samsung is going to offer the option of 2 five-core processors for a combined total of 10 cores, running at 3.0GHZ.  The 45nm Hi-K processors based on the Intel® Core microarchitecture is in the new Intel 3-series, which hasn’t be released yet. The new desktop system are supposed to hit the market in korea later this year, and maybe hit the Americas by early 2008.
