    I wonder if this will apply to GPU designs too. If yes, this could be a solution for Nvidia, AMD, and others that that have to wait for the major shrinks the were previouly hoping for and this alter chip designs to compensate.

    AMD might want to seriously consider this for its continuing quest to battle Intel... If it can give comparable power saving and efficiencies to Intel's 3D transistors, the playing fields might be leveled out dramatically when Intel brings that new tech to the market.

    What happens if you incorporate this technology into Intel's 3D design?

    this.
    50% reduction in power consumption from this, and 50% from tri-gate transistors = uber overclocking?

    Is that 50% of the remaining 50% or 50% percent of the original 100% percent? I'm wondering because 50 and 50 equal 100, so that would mean "uber overclocking" with no power consumption at all.
