We took the silicon core of an Intel Core 2 Duo microprocessor, a camera and a microphone to the Las Vegas Strip here at CES 2008… and asked people ‘What is this thing?” See the reactions for yourself. For those who haven’t seen one, they’re quite beautiful and extraordinary. Fans of good design will marvel at the mind-boggling intricacy of 400-million transistors in about the size of a dime. All brought to you by Intel’s leading 45nm process technology. Transistors are the tiny switches that process the ones and zeroes of the digital world. They make everything on the Internet and in your computer possible… including this sentence. For comparison, approximately 400 of Intel’s 45nm transistors could fit on the surface of a single human red blood cell.
