Intel has been touting its 45-nanometer chips
for what seems
, but if all goes as planned, Panasonic will actually beat the chip giant to the punch by releasing products to the commercial market over a week earlier. Apparently, the six new Blu-ray recorders
we spotted at CEATEC will utilize the firm's new generation "UniPhier
system LSI based on the 45-nanometer process technology," and sure enough, those units are slated to hit Japan on November 1st -- a full ten days before
Intel will reportedly get its Yorkfield crew out to the mainstream. Bet you didn't see that coming, now did you?
