Cell Processor $150 +?

A Cell Processor wafer is estimated to currently cost between $9,000 & $10,000 by IBM to manufacture. Factor in failure, waste and packaging the cost per Cell Processor is running $150 plus.

The Inquirer opines that with 200 good sites on a wafer, IBM may be able to knock off $100 per Cell Processor.

Read the article by Charlie Demerjain in the Inquirer linked here. Article includes a nice picture of a Cell wafer.

Hat tip to Joe of the Pinehurst Thread for the link.
