It sure is. Heh, I think you would be happy to see some of us have converted to Intelism.

Not really a whole new architecture like people say. But Intel themselves say that is a combination of the Yonah and Netburst, with that, you get high clock speeds (as seen when using LN2) and the efficiency of Yonah.
