Moore’s law scaling dead by 2021, to be replaced by 3D integration

a-silicon-wafer-in-sand-maybe
A new semiconductor report projects that 2D planar scaling will end by 2021, replaced by 3D logic integration and stacked chips — but how will this affect long-term device scaling and overall performance?

Planar NAND flash is dead: All hail our new 3D NAND overlords

20nm NAND flash
Traditional planar NAND flash has had a long and illustrious run, but its time is over. Multiple manufacturers have announced they have no plans to pursue 2D NAND below the 15nm process node.
