External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (eSATA)
Initially all SATA (and PATA) interfaces were for internal hard disks. With the introduction
of eSATA, the SATA interface can be used with external storage media. This puts eSATA in
competition with Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Firewire. Especially since, like USB and
Firewire, eSATA allows hot swapping. More ...

Intel's Core 2 Processors
Intel's Core 2 processors, released in July of 2006, are based on the "Core microarchitecture",
a dual core design using a 65nm manufacturing process to put 291 million transistors
on a 143 square mm die. Each core has its own 64KB L1 cache. The two cores share an L2
cache that can be either 2MB or 4MB. More ...
