Sure they do, just look at those half-cores glistening.
what the fuck is all that shit?
i did some processor architecture in the cs major (wish i had taken the electives on that to find out more desu) and i cant recognize shit. it also didnt seem like a processor would have nearly that many components. only thing i can make out is the big memory arrays
im serious if someone that knows more could explain i'd be thankful
>believing lies about "technology"
It's all really black magic.
Technology is just the pretext for how the antichrist will take over the world. Step 1 is ensuring everyone has a computer.
thank you m8
mostly, yeah. in the end we learned a lot of more modern stuff for making the processors go faster but it was probably deprecated too since i remember that we once used pentium 4 architecture as an example for something
You didn't study well.
Stuff around the edges are the memory pads/PHY. HT links, display out, and IO.
Theres a breakdown of the modules themselves.
Fun fact: Westmere EX is the largest mass produced x86 die ever done by either AMD or intel at 684mm^2. Knights landing is 1 square millimeter smaller.
And to round out the first gen Core series chips, Nehalem-EX
I actually have a bunch of wafers with 64 MB RAM chips on them.
They don't look that spectacular, but are nice to look at regardless. Especially in the right light.
Remember a time where you could actually see transistors?
that shit is fucking magic to me, mate
just look at he middle left
this doesn't look like it's made on purpose; it looks like a fucking videogame glitch
the CPU architects are fucking madmen
Haswell-E die, also used in the consumer i7 LGA 2011 chips.
I have one of these as my main CPU by the way, all cores enabled. No overclocking though, and because of this board's shitty bios turbo is fucked.
I don't know what's there to like about that random colored bullshit. This is how men build computers.
that random colored bullshit as you put it are the actual CPU dies themselves. Real men design and build "that random colored bullshit" for a living so you can shitpost about it on the internet.
real men eat their wafers
There's one better to look at then the half-adder there.
Mmmmmm girl, this is why I'm going into computer engineering, I want to take part in designing these magnificent things. Either that or research and development on something like monoatomic transistors.
I have a tough time picturing a transistor smaller than 2 or 3 atoms, since the transistors I know need 2 inputs and 1 output and I can't really see 2 inputs going into the same atom not screwing with each other in some way.
At one atom the elementary particles themselves must become your i/o. Quantum physics basically forces this scheme on us, since, you know, electrons can just decide to be on the other side of something if it's small enough.
Look at (probably machine generated) cluster-fuckery
