My point is yields and production of these are going to suck. The only thing saving them is that they are so small they can fit so many on a wafer. That alone mitigates the yield loss. Memory has very few process it has to go through, cpu's have middle amount, gpu's have a bunch of steps involved and mcp and system on a chip has the most amount of processes to go through. It's time consuming and creates a bunch of trash chips. The only thing saving them is a dead market. No matter how much everyone lies about sales the market is dead.
Nvidia can yammer up 28 nm and put it on a roadmap but until ram goes through it, cpu's go through it, gpu's go through it, they aren't even going to try chipsets or systems on a chip. Tegra 2 was supposed to start showing up last christmas now it's spring. My guess is we won't see hardly any of them till late summer.
