Some of you guys are very knowledgeable on this front...When we were waiting for the 90nm chip, all I could hear was that the smaller process would mean less power consumption, meaning higher frequencies, meaning a happier world. Someone once told me that increasing the surface area of the processor has a similar effect, as well. I'd like more detail on this. Let's start from the basics. What, physically, is the process? Is it the width of the transistor or what? What effect does the size of the process have on performance and on power consumption? What are the physical laws in play here? I realize that at this size it's Newtonian. Could we have a few equations, maybe some diagrams, and an explanation of what's going on here from the standpoint of physics? I think that this would be of enormous interest not only to me, but to other inquisitive individuals who would appreciate a closer look at the things that we're always rattling off about. Thanks in advance.
