CPU DIE PHOTOGRAPHY

 

The amazing work of Pauli Rautakorpi

 

Most of CPU dies are not bigger than our fingernails - but there's an entire world inside the die.

While changing the light angle, the die reflects a completely different color spectrum.

 

Something to enjoy.

 

The HARDWARECOP CPU MUSEUM is currently the only page on the internet that offers a clearly structured and user-friendly die photography section for you to explore. Even with GPUs and other unbelievable modern artworks!
