"We all know that one of the major limiting factors of the initial G200 products was the fact that they were built on a 65nm manufacturing process which essentially made their production costs high (hence the prices we saw at launch) and contributed to massive amounts of heat being generated by the core."


Just wondering how a die size shrink to 55nm would have less production costs. Wouldnt the smaller die be more costly to produce?

Yes. Basically, they are able to fit more cores on a single wafer.
