Hi, David

I am doing researches on process variations. What's your opinion on this issue for 22nm technology? Is it still an important factor that manufacturers should take into consideration? I read another paper called "process technology variation", it mentioned systematic and random variations can be reduced by new innovations such as new transistor architectures. Do you think this can solve the process variation problems and do we need techniques at OS level to deal with "process variation" (Such as mapping and scheduling algorithms) ?

Thanks,

Tianyi
