MC's die size is 346 mm2(x2) and Beckton is 6xx mm2 and not 5xx mm2. http://i42.tinypic.com/4siubk.png Beckton is one big monolithic die so the defect rate is much higher. 6xx mm2 is huge. oO

AMD had better Best the Nehalem by a good margin, or it's a failing proposition for them. Equal = Intel wins. Intel is 80% of the market (or more) in servers right now and no one in the server MB industry even wants to invest in AMD. Too small a fish. They HAVE to do better, and a LOT better than intel. And if you think Sandy bridge is an incremental improvement, you'd better think again...
