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

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

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

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