Will report the chip and speed when it ships. I want the one that will give me more battery life which one will that be?

And the 110nm process isn't a performance booster, but a cost reducer & power saver. It allows NV to get more dies per wafer. ATI and NV use it on their mid and low-range chips (eg 6600 & x700). 90nm is the next process that will offer the future clock speed and transistor count boosts. 130nm low-k is what the current high end boards use.
I have a NV42 which will do 385/770 or so.
