193nm immersion lithography: Status and challenges
If AMD has to use very expensive immersion lithography for 45nm chips Intel wins, game over.
The a above is fact that you lame brained AMD cheerleaders refuse to accept. Intel's ability to manufacture 45nm chip on their existing tools will bury AMD once and for all. Intel will do immersion when and if it's necessary. For AMD it's not a choice, AMD is forced to go the costly unproven 45nm immersion way just to try to keep up with Intel. Intel's train of 45nm dry Chips will run over AMD. AMD will be road kill. AMD R.I.P.
