From the 45nm

Intel has said that beginning with its entire family of 45 nanometer (nm) high-k metal gate (Hi-k) processors, all its chips will be lead-free.

The Intel 45nm Hi-k family includes the next-generation Intel Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad and Xeon processors, and the company will begin 45nm Hi-k production in the second half of this year.
