AMD Shows How CPUs Are Made Too (Video)

If you're reading this right now, you have a CPU. Regardless of make, the basics behind semiconductor production are the same – and have you ever wondered how companies such as AMD and Intel produce such wonderful silicon toys? Then check out this informative video to learn in 10 minutes how CPUs are made.

The video is made by AMD and goes through the same steps as the Intel picture story we published earlier in the week.

    How do you know I have a CPU? Someone could have printed out this article and handed it to me to read. But since I wrote this comment, I guess it does mean I have a CPU ;)

    I'd like to watch this video, but all I see are huge pixels and artefacts.

    didn't know they were bonding the cores to the package with BGA... assumed they were still using gold wire... nice...

    Shouldn't AMD be working on catching up to the Core i7?

    takes 2 months to create these CPU's? and we still bitch about paying under 300$ for them? :)
