A Korean scientist whose CV includes 100 Gbps Ethernet for Finisar says he's created an extremely low-power 100 Gbps clock data recovery (CDR) chip to help cut data centre communications power consumption. As we all know, data centres are power gluttons. Build one as big as the NSA, and keeping it from catching fire is a problem …
Don't tell Apple but though corners seemed to be rounded on that Korean chip.

Now that's the kind of technical description that I like.
That sounds rather... large.
Re: 112 cm2?
I make that 430 times larger than an intel atom (silverthorne is 26mm^2). Indeed, it does seem a lot. :)
This appears to be little more than a product announcement.
