Doomed to not scale.

Drifting off topic to nanotechnlogy - if we had molecular scale graphene 
transistors, computers would run a great deal faster at considerably 
less power.  We have not reached the ultimate physical limits of 
transistors.  We are, however, approaching the ultimate physical limits 
of transistors built using photolithography with 193 nanometer light.
