It is hard to believe that a modern processor (CPU) is the most complex product in the world. What is so complex in this piece of metal?
In this article I will try to explain how a modern processer (CPU) is made from the sand.
It takes about $ 5 billion dollars to build a processor manufacturing factory. This factory approximately has 4 years to return the invested funds in its technology, before it will start making the profit. If we make some simple calculations that comes to 100 microchips per hour that the factory should manufacture in order to return the invested funds.
