Got A Decade To Spare?

Toward achieving 1 million times increase in computing efficiency July 11, 2012 Magnetoresistive spin-transistor (credit: Joseph S. Friedman et al./Northwestern University) Northwestern University researchers may have found an alternative to CMOS (current computer processor chips) that would allow for highly efficient computer logic circuits that generate much less heat: an entirely new logic circuit family based on magnetic semiconductor devices that could lead to logic circuits up to 1 million times more power-efficient than today’s. http://www.kurzweilai.net/toward-achieving-1-million-times-increase-in-computing-efficiency#comments
