Tukwila question

By coolblue

  1. I've done some quick calculations assuming that this new processor is made using 300mm wafers but it seems my calculations are way off. By some 211 billion transistors! :-(

    30,000,000nm^2 wafer (300mm^2)
    65nm^2 transistor
    213,017,751,500 transistors

    I know the math itself is right but if anyone knows where I went wrong could you please let me know. Of course my calculations are assuming that every square nanometer of a wafer is turned into a transistor but I don't think that has caused my numbers to be off that much.

    No, Intel's new processor. :suspiciou

    And I've figured out part of my problem, they make more than one processor from a wafer. :rolleyes:

    So my question has now changed to how many processor's would Intel get from one 300mm wafer? Working and not.
