On Topic. Intel does have lots of cash reserves and they make their own wafers. So problems that TSMC has doesn't mean Intel will have. For example, GF doesn't have the problems TSMC has with wafers. Intel has enough money to find workarounds for every problem.
Prices will also depend on AMD's strength. Intel is going to make a profit. Just how much is the question. AMD is their biggest competition and if AMD puts out expensive chips so will Intel. Same with what ATI and Nvidia have been doing all this time.

Voltage depends on Temperatures. Lower temps mean you can add more voltage. Smaller chips usually means cooler cpu, but it all depends on the chip.Edited by Bleached - 1/14/11 at 1:32pm
