    Creating one high-performance test chip on a new process isn't that big a deal - what we need to know is how many they *tried* to create in order to get a working one. One good chip out of an entire wafer isn't such a triumph...

    True, though to squeeze 2.5GHz out of the chip does indicate that they were able to push the design quite hard, indicating a high quality of silicon and thus high yield at lower performance, though that's just trend and certainly not a rule so perhaps indeed yields could also be low, but I think less likely to be the case.
