Intel's roadmap says that we should be able to hit 11 nm, but you would have no idea just how much leakage current would be inside those chips. Gates that are a mere two to three atoms thick is going to cause a lot of problems. I think it's time we start looking into memristor technology and other things, because I can just see physics getting in the way.

Here's a good read:
