But will be converted to 55


The beauty of half node process such as 80 or currently most interesting 55 nanometre process is that it is not that hard to convert the original chip and prepare it for the smaller so called half node process.

This is exactly what will happen to RV670. Our sources confirmed that the original design of the chip was suppose to end up at 65 nanometre but the final version of the chip will be out as a 55 nanometre. The chip will draw less power and will be physically smaller.

It is much easier to put two 55 nanometre chip than two 65 as the card will need less power and that is the plan.
