What would really be a great compliment to this analysis articel is to investigate and report what EDA design tools were used to design the chips.

I think they are 3D multi chip modules so that is probably the size of the DRAM integrated into the package

Looks no performance advance in A4. What is the magic of 10 hours running time?
