    I am very excited about Moorestown, although a bit miffed that it's not a 32nm product. It might be good anyway, what with the PCU stuff learned from Nehalem being applied and all.

    Did he mention spring IDF specifically, or October IDF in Taiwan for more Moorestown info?

    Okay, I just watched the netcast, some sites claimed Spring IDF but he said Taiwan which is in October.

    That's the wafer, all the little square shaped things are dies (or dice), individual chips.

    ParaHelix.org,
    That's a 300mm silicon wafer that many hundreds of the Moorestown CPUs are etched onto. It will be cut into individual rectangular dies that will be soldered to PCBs like the one he's holding up in the third image.

    Thanks for that, so, basically its just a load of CPU's stuck together which would usually be cut into individuals?

    I am not looking forward to this, I have never needed a smart phone and wouldn't really want one (unless it was free)
    I have the cheapest phone you can get, it sends messages and makes phone calls and has a calculator.
