yea die shrink, maybe 3d transistors. lets face it, they had five years to do it. that means they couldve spent two years at the drawing board, and three years completing the task. not sure what happened.
amd will not suffer greatly though as much as some of us would want, and who knows, the enthusiast is a very small portion of the consumers. with them pushing the "8 Cores" may do really well on the market. in which case everybody benefits.
amd meets their quota, the 7*** series comes in shortly after. intel sees the competition steeling sales and lowers prices, and hopfully releases Ivy without too much delay.
