    Wow, hopefully this will allow AMD to have a head-start on 22nm processors.

    so what they did was skip right to 22nm, i mean come on how much smaller can these get sometime we are going to need a different tech

    amd is just doing its phenom 45nm and intel is looking at 32nm already
    but
    what do you expect intel has way more money to spend on research then AMD does and AMD has a full graphics business to run too

    How are they turning up the "heat" when Intel supposedly already beat them to it with 32nm and the high-k metal gate?

    32nm is not the same as 22nm ;)
    I'll let you figure out the rest.
