Intel stated that the layout engineers could increase transistor drive current (and therefore transistor performance) by placing multiple fins between the source and drain.

Now, Intel stated that at higher voltages they are seeing an 18% performance gain w.r.t. 32 nm. Does this 18% improvement apply to a single fin transistor? If so, wouldn't it be reasonable to conclude that a 3 fin transistor could switch up to 54% faster than a 32 nm transistor?

I'm not sure, I'm just asking.
