“16nm/14nm is essentially a 20nm metal stack with a better, but more costly transistor,” says Mentor’s Sawicki. This is backed up by a forecast from the Linley Group, which shows the number of transistors that can be bought per dollar at each node likely has peaked.
“The focus will be on system integration using 2D and 3D technologies instead of just scaling transistors,”
