Holy smokes! I really thought that Intel 4 was just an evolution of Intel 7. If this diagram is correct - then I was woefully misinformed. That reduction in library height for an HP process is totally unexpected. Maybe Intel's process group's new leadership has truly got themselves 'unstuck' and are burning the midnight oil. If this scales well and yields well - I’ll be impressed and eating some crow.I think the scaling is greater for High performance library which would be more important for Intel, which is actually closer to 2x scaling.

Honestly, I’ll be happy if it is right. It was embarrassing and an economic blow to US for one of our tech giants to fall so far behind in technology.
Also, I’ll owe @Henry swagger an apology - if actual products are equally impressive.
