4GHz Intel Processors Looming?

VR-Zone is reporting that Intel will finally break the 4GHz barrier with their Nehalem core, which is to be manufactured using a 45nm process node.

"Based on the 45nm Nehalem architecture, Intel aims to bring Bloomfield clock speed above 4GHz in 2008. It is a speed that Intel never get to hit with their previous generation of processors where the highest clock speed reach is 3.8GHz with their Pentium 4 570 & 670."

Considering that current 65nm Core 2 Duos have almost no trouble overclocking to 3.5GHz+, this is probably a safe bet.
