Right, but writing for RWT is a bit tougher because I have to account for people that have no idea what Ion/Ioff is, so by giving numbers without contexual reference would not be meaningful. It's the old "target audiance" issue. If I write at the level they are presented at IEDM, the number of people who actually understand it would be few. If I write at the level targetted for software programmers, that would take too long. In general, I try to target a somewhat sophomore level, assume that you have some hardware background, but perhaps not enough to know what Ion/Ioff is.

I do have Ion/Ioff numbers for Intel's process. That was disclosed here yesterday. I'll put those numbers in the next report.
