Nvidia just went for 65 nanometre, ATI is at 55 nanometre and it looks like the R700 might be the world’s first 45 nanometre graphics chip.
A 45 nanometre chip is at least 30 percent smaller than 55nm and its more than 50 percent smaller than 65 nanometre chip and at the same time this means that it will be way cooler than any 65 or 55 nanometre chip.
This also means lower heat dissipation and higher clock speeds, but we still don’t know G100 can be the same deal and it can be made of many smaller cores as well. This is how it is possible to put just a bit less than 300 million transistors on a 72 sq mm die.
