Well, I think if you look at the improvement that Intel showed from 45nm-->32nm, that gives a sense of what is likely to occur in the future.

New high-k materials could improve things substantially and further drive down leakage.

That's because it's harder to decrease voltage and it's harder to image random logic. The former is being addressed by no longer using SRAM and the latter with restrictive design rules and double patterning.

I definitely agree that 32nm shows a lot of promise.
