AMD released its Sempron II, Athlon II, Turion II and Phenom II (in generally increasing order of strength), as well as Shanghai Opteron processors using the 45-nm process technology.

The Xbox 360 S, released in 2010, has its Xenon processor in 45 nm process.

Famous quotes containing the words introduction and/or commercial:

    For the introduction of a new kind of music must be shunned as imperiling the whole state; since styles of music are never disturbed without affecting the most important political institutions.
    Plato (c. 427–347 B.C.)

    Electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It’s going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.
    —J.G. (James Graham)
