Help to understand the terminology

What is the difference in CPU microprocessor and nanoprocessor?
option "size" is not welcome, for proof I would be grateful.
As I understand it now, the classification of the following:
CPU -> wire
the microprocessor -> crystal
nanoprocessor -> non-volatile nanotransistors (proof)

Like so the option of "size not welcome"?

"The major characteristics of a CPU are: the clock frequency, performance, power consumption, norms of the lithographic process used in manufacture (for microprocessors) and architecture." wiki; micro, nano is the characteristics dimension of lithography.

I understand that you are interested in the mechanism used for processing, then the CPU is the transistor, the microprocessor is a transistor on the graphite substrate, nanoprocessor is graphene transistors, however, there is a limit of possibilities, for this I recommend to familiarize with the concept of Half Shrink

To increase computing power, you probably want to look towards quantum computing systems.
the "size" I meant physical, not parts :)
Your answer is fine with me.

"the CPU is the transistor, the microprocessor is a transistor on the graphite substrate, nanoprocessor is graphene transistors"
was there Miniprocessor (^-3)? - xavier43 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:38
I'm such a term is not met, because the idea it refers to transistor electronics ie just to processors.
As you said "wire",
is a computing system based on relays, it's the end of the 40s — late 50s,
just processors including miles конец60х-середина70х 20veka
— in the 80s-90s is microelectronics,
— in the first decade of the 2000s is already nano with the advent of 90nm those of lithography process)

Now the concept of nano is more widely used, due to the emergence of new materials and approaches to manufacturing, ie nanoprocessor on graphene can give greater computing power than nanoprocessor to graphite on the existing production technology.However, graphene is still being studied... - reuben_Pacocha commented on October 8th 19 at 02:41
and is there a clear transition between the CPU — a microprocessor and nanoprocessors? Or just the taste?
Ask this:
Is nanoprocessor microprocessor and microprocessor is the CPU? - xavier43 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:44

We at the Institute classification was carried out (processors and microprocessors) in density and number of transistors (the technical process)
that is the distinction between a microprocessor and nanoprocessors not? - xavier43 commented on October 8th 19 at 02:40

The microprocessor is a processor implemented in the form of IC (chip)?
