A 300mm silicon wafer can produce about 250 of these chips. More arithmetic returns a number of over 14 million silicon wafers to produce a solid state drive to mate up with each of the Intel CPU chips. A very large wafer fab facility can produce about 100,000 wafer starts per month, 1.2 million per year. 14 million wafers would require nearly 12 of those monster fabs. Each of those monster fabs would cost $4-5 billion and take at least two years to build and equip.
