Intel might have pulled one over on us, after all, assuming the last five years of effort designing a replacement for CMOS design bear fruit. Their new magneto-electric spin-orbit design not only uses significantly less power than traditional designs, but Intel also claims it offers five times better logic density. If they are able to bring this technology to fruition, their 10nm woes may not be as much of a setback as it currently seems. The Register has a link to the Nature article, if you would like to know more.
"Chipzilla claimed its magneto-electric spin-orbit (MESO) technology's important characteristics are low voltage (as much as five times below today's CMOS-based chips) and consequently lower power (between 10 and 30 times lower than CMOS)."
