  1 / 6    
<b><font color="#76b900" size="4">Congratulations to our winner: Ultimate PC Man!</font>
His guess of 2.184 Trillion transistors was the closest without exceeding the actual count.</b> But he was still off by over a trillion transistors. Thanks to everyone that participated, and look forward to more contests like these in the future.
