I know this isn't the theme of the article, Brian, but one can avoid--or at least postpone for a couple generations--many of these challenges by moving to FD-SOI at 28nm or 14nm. FD-SOI is Faster, Cooler, and Simpler than alternate processes and, because it is planar, doesn't require the different design and processing that FinFETs need.

Yes - it will be interesting to see which way the industry moves. I think we are facing more physical limitations and challenges than we ever have in the past and it would be amazing if the whole industry always picked the same way.
