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...

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
