    Re: Scientists build a 3D computer chip that fuses logic and memory

    The prototype combines 2 million carbon nanotube field-effect transistors and over 1 million....comparable to a Pentium 1 @ 166mhz?

    A sily comparison. Remember this is just an early prototype, a proof of concept.

    If you go purely by transistor numbers, which is like going back to comparing purely by megahertz.
    There also is the bottleneck also arising from the physical separation.

    This too.
