What do Intel make in their 45nm and 32nm Fabs? - Page 2

Oh 65 is quite old for the Desktop/Laptop.

But it makes sense of course for other appliances, ..of course.

I also thought of Supercomputers. Those would be needing upgrades for CPUs that explode for a few years.

X79/Z77 motherboard chipsets are still made on 65nm process(Intel only just moved 8 series motherboard's chipset down to 32nm) and they are still a critical part of a desktop computer.

Plus a fab can make more than just desktop/laptop parts, there are various other parts(Ethernet Controller, modems, etc) that does not need to be made on the latest process tech. Smartphone modems for example are still made on 65nm process, as shown here.
