I asked a question about computer hardware. I looked through the section about what is considered on topic on this site and I didn't see any problems with my question. However my question was closed as off topic, specifically, if I read it correctly, because my question is supposedly about a hardware recommendation.

What can I do to make it clear that I am not looking for a hardware recommendation and what do I need to do so my question gets reopened. And if my question is in fact off topic for this site, which site is better for my question?

    As mentioned in the comments the only people who know are going to either be the designers, or those that have had reason to remove a die from its packaging and enough time to determine functional blocks. It borders on not being about the use of computer hardware and more on low-level electronic design.

Its rather broad, since there's no specific thing that determines the size of a core based on its design, and may vary according to role and generation.

While one might potentially disagree with the close reason, it is also a question that's probably impossible to answer authoritatively, and as an end user, rather than worry about the size of a specific core, how it does your task matters more.
