ChipEstimate.com is a very interesting concept to help a chip management team "size up" a proposed IC. Based on high-level information about gate count and IP used, it comes up with a floorplan and, at an additional cost, will provide budget estimates for manufacturing the chip with various foundries' processes. I remember that eSilicon had a similar budgeter, though it was intended for designs to be done with eSilicon. This ChipEstimate.com appears to be a standalone estimation product.
