The emerging research devices section considers molecular devices, rod logic systems, nanotubes and nanowires and other nanotechnology related technology.
Page 44 of the emerging research devices section. They define nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) as rod logic.
They have a conservative estimate of rod logic performance.
They also assume 2-D architecture for rod logic (NEMS)
In table 59 of the emerging tech... the best cycle times expected in 2016 are for all optical computer or a quantum computer if they pan out. (optical 10**12 to 10**16; Quantum 10**15 to 10**16)
Molecular, NEMS and quantum are more energy efficient
Only molecular is projected to be better on cost/gate.
They do not see advanced CMOS being beaten on all factors of speed, cost and energy in 2016.
Some of the tech they think can get them to 61GHz (circuit - logic speed)..switching speeds up to the terahertz range.
In the main exec summary, they have a lot of detail but it boils down continuation of trends... double the features per square centimeter every two years and 29% cost reduction for equal
stuff each year from generation to generation and 45%/year in the same generation.
