Intel Sandy Bridge chips packing PCI Express 3.0, super-frugal battery life possible?

We're hearing increasing amounts about Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge platform, the 32nm chip architecture expected to begin production in Q4 2010, and now a few new tidbits have us even more excited.  According to Hardmac's sources, Sandy Bridge will not only include native USB 3.0 support but PCI Express 3.0, for faster intercommunication with GPUs and other components; meanwhile we should apparently expect some healthy battery life improvements.

Intel 32nm Sandy Bridge chips tipped for Q4 2010

Intel are tipped to have scheduled their shift to 32nm "Sandy Bridge" chip architecture by Q4 2010, according to the latest loose-talk at PC manufacturers.  The technology will replace Nehalem and Westmere, the latter expected to shift to 32nm processes in Q4 this year.  Westmere will add six-core processors to the company's line, and go on sale alongside 45nm quad-core Nehalem chips.
