When i thinked about it i tought everything IS getting smaller.

It's a mix of both usually. Example:

Ryzen 5 1600X - 192 mm², 4.8 Billion transistors (@14nm)
Ryzen 5 3600X -  74 mm², 3.8 Billion transistors (@7nm)

4.8B / 192 mm² = 25 Million/mm²
3.8B /  74 mm² = 51 Million/mm²

The area of the die of the Ryzen 5 3600X is about 60% smaller than that of the 1600X, but the number of transistors is only about 20% smaller. Thanks to 7nm you can fit about twice as many transistors in the same space as before.

Hey everyone

How are doing today ?

Want to get some knowledge

I'm seeing that less nanomètres means more power better energy better perf

But how IS that possible?? . Since 14nm IS less performant than a 10 and a 7 etc...

Is'nt bigger = to more Space to put thing:s on ?? More Space to work on ??

Thanks everyone

The smaller the process-node, the less distance there is between the internal components, ergo less wasted energy and less distance for electrons to travel. That's why.

The opposite is true. The smaller your transistors are, the more of them you can put in the same space.

I think you are confusing the size of a transistor with the size of the die. The die isn't getting smaller, the transistors are. Smaller transistors = more transistors in the same size die as before.

Ah ok i see thanks for the answer

When i thinked about it i tought everything IS getting smaller.

That's why its seemed illogical for me

Thanks very much

Thanks everyone i understand better now
