Intel's 32nm is as good as AMD's 40nm

The following table from http://techreport.com/articles.x/21099 tells an interesting story:

Intel's quad core SB i7 CPU is built on a 32nm process with 995 million transistors on 216 mm^2 die area, or 4.6 million/mm^2. In comparison, AMD's Llano APU has 1450 million transistors on 228 mm^2 die, or 6.36 million/mm^2.

In other words, AMD's 32nm is 38% denser than Intel's.

LOL 38% "denser" and worst than an i3.
Shall we call this extra FAT?

You are a moron

Intel manages to cram more cache on die than AMD. That's one thing you didn't take into consideration before doing all the math.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly what the Master of Lies, Shiradouche is trying to say here...

I don't think he even understands the basics of transistor densities and why denser does not automagically mean better...

Nor does he seem to understand the difference between the Llano and i7 product lines...

But then again, we are talking about Shiradouche who seems to have the intelligence of Penix's brother/father (because we know they have to be the same)

PS: from the link that Shiradouche posted:

The A8-3500M's four CPU cores are routinely and consistently slower than the Core i5-2410M's two cores, sometimes by margins that are borderline embarrassing. Intel has opened up a monstrous lead on this front, and the few architectural enhancements in Llano's cores aren't sufficient to narrow the gap appreciably

Sharidouche ... are you on drugs?
Since when density = performance?
I mean come on man .... you are a real MORON!!

The only thing dense here is Sharikook's intelligence...I know autistic kids who know more about technology than this loser.

Actually - I've grown tired of this dirtbag and have submitted his email address and this blogs information to the federal authorities for investigation. Falsely claiming a doctorate is a felony in this country...

So I guess this means Intel bankrupt sometime in 2008?

Oh wait...

This is the proof of Intel superiority. Intel gives more performance from smaller amount of transistors.

Asshat, who is going to spend that kind of money on 3rd rate POS like this one?

For what? Step stools?

Mumbai child of the slums...

LMFAO

I love that everyone has picked up on calling this dickhead "Sharidouche". Sharikou you truly are a douchebag. How do you live with yourself?
