The main problem of the chip manufacturing is the inability of the traditional physics to calculate the fundamental physical properties of the used materials in that extremely low dimensions. Which physical properties have been really reached at this level of 14 nanometers? We are not forced to go any single step below the natural boundary of 5 nm. We have tried, but we have to remember: the cleverer give in. There are some new, different ways to improve our "computing ability". Maybe the best of them directs us to a cognitive chip of a super-brain.
