I bet it had a LOT to do with Penryn, because they use less power. If you’re Google one of your biggest costs is power in a data center.

One funny story? I couldn’t get into the fab. Why? My camera is too “dirty.” It would have destroyed thousands of chips. The fab is one of the cleanest rooms in the world.
