10nm with luck, tricks, bells and whistles. ASML have yet to show anything less than 30nm with a normal operating EUV machine.

10nm in 2 years??? That would beat Moore's law expectations...and we are supposed to be facing fundamental limits at that point!

So it's pretty clear the timing is pretty bad for EUV.

According to German BMBF, 14 nm not even ready until 2015, let alone 10 nm. http://www.electroiq.com/articles/sst/2012/08/euv-lithography-project-launches-for-better-resolution-at-14nm.html

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
