Something I keep forgetting to calculate but today you get the answer, calculated with precision, for a chip the size of a Coronavirus, an Ebola virus, and lastly, a red blood cell. This calculation will be spot-on accurate.

This calculation will not include a power supply or interfacing hardware to make it work. This will be only for the CPU core.

Ryzen CPUs now use a 6-nanometer processor, so that’s what this math will be based on.

Coronavirus – 250 nanometers. 250/6 = 41.6 transistors per line, for a single layer processor that has 1,733 transistors. If 10 layers were stacked, the processor could easily have 17,000 transistors and still fit within the profile of a coronavirus.

Ebola virus: 1.3 microns. 1,300/6 = 216 transistors per line, 47,799 transistors per layer, which in this case could easily be stacked 30 high for a total of 1,404,000 transistors.

If the chip was the size of a red blood cell, today’s tech could:

10 microns – 10,000/6 = 1,666 transistors per line, for a single layer that had 2,776,666 transistors, which would not be a challenge to get 50 layers of with the thickness a red blood cell would allow (for a price, of course) for a total of over 100 million transistors.

QUESTION: Are we there yet? Could THAT small of a chip be made with that many transistors and actually be separated from the rest on the die and then function? I doubt it, but 10/10th of that is probable, And who needs the chip to be as small as a red blood cell when 1/10th the thickness of a human hair would not be noticed in a shot? Clearly, the tech is there now to chip a shot in a way no one would ever notice.

Aaah, but that would be found under a microscope, RIGHT? Don’t bet on it, because there is a problem with finding one – Do you know how vast the viewing field would be under a microscope that had to inspect an entire milliliter of volume down to that level of detail? How about One drop of blood, which is only a fraction of that, (a small fraction) can be spread across several slides that would take an hour to inspect each. Looking for a chip the size of a blood cell in that much volume would be a daunting task and would require quite a bit of luck to find.
