* Intel working on next-gen transistor

ZDNet's got an article on Intel's work on transistors to replace the standard silicon models used today:

The end for shrinking silicon transistors, however, is getting closer. Some transistor components are only a few atoms wide and thus can only be shrunk slightly more than they already have been. Smaller transistors also leak electricity, which creates heat and battery problems.

Researchers say hybrid chips that combine silicon and some as-yet alternative material will begin to appear in about 10 years, while chips made almost completely of the new materials may start to show up in the 2020s.
