    Where did you get the 100mm2 figure? It is almost twice as big.
    Yes, 44mm2 is the size of just 4 Ryzen core, then you have 16mm2 for 8Mb L3, 6mm2 for the L2, etc etc. All must be multiplied by 2 for the 8 core variant. Below is a die shot published by AMD:

    I got the 44mm² number (for 4 cores) from here: AMD touts Zen die size advantage at ISSCC - The Tech Report

    I believed it is the complete die size. But looking at the die shot and assuming the L3 cache size (for one 8MB part) to be 16mm², I agree with you that it must be more something like 200mm² (for the 8 core)... (and therefore about 100mm² for the 4 core).

    Sorry for the confusion...

    I’m excited to announce that Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is the first cloud provider to offer the next generation Intel Xeon processor, codenamed Skylake.

    This is certainly a nice endorsement, but by no means does it indicate anything exclusive.
