Like an earthquake or it not blending right with the 22nm/28nm etc. An error on a die that causes 1 in 6 A9 processors to be failures is O.K., one like that on a wafer of 9 billion transistor chips is not.
Remember kids, even tho the lithography says "16nm" it doesn't mean any of the parts are actually 16nm, it just means they can reliably print 16nm lines!

This is just way too reminiscent of 20nm.

It means one of the CDs is 16nm. Usually the memory/cache on a processor is actually the smallest critical dimension.
