Charlie from the Inquirer has snapped off a couple of pictures of wafers that reportedly contain 65nm Quad-Core AMD processor cores. Not much information other than the pictures, but still fun to look at nonetheless...
Looks like a typical 3.5" x 2" business card in those pictures. And it looks like approximately 5 1/4 cores span the 3.5" card. That makes each core about .66" wide, or roughly 16.72mm. 16.72mm squared is about 280mm2. That would make the AMD's Quad-Core 65nm dies about 100 square millimeters larger than current 90nm Dual-Core Athlon X2s.
