What is meant by nm technology? Tags: CPUs Last response: December 4, 2012 1:50 PM in CPUs Share Himanshjain December 4, 2012 12:32:56 PM Hi Everybody. First of all, this is not a homework. I am just asking this out of Curiosity. (I am clarifying this because my previous 2 question got an allegation of Homework) Today I was checking my PC info via speccy and I saw in CPU section, there is written: Technology: 45nm What the HECK is 45 nm technology. I tried to research on google and found much much complicated definitions than what I can understand. If anyone could just simplify it and explain it to me, then it will be very helpful. Thanks for reading this question, Himansh More about : meant technology Reply to Himanshjain itzdanielp a b à CPUs December 4, 2012 1:50:47 PM 45nm (nanometers) is the wavelength that the CPU's are built on.
