That's interesting, but the devil is in the details.
A fusion rector needs a neutron multiplier and a neutron moderator, as well as the lithium breeding material. Even if the container material is somehow shielded, the moderator and multiplier materials will absorb neutrons becoming radioactive.

I doubt that.
TSMC 20nm will be ready for GPUs a lot sooner than their 16nm process. The only reason there are no 20nm GPUs yet is because the initial ramp was fully booked out by Apple.
Meanwhile, a comparison of Apple's 20nm A8 density versus 14nm Core M, indicates Intel's 14nm may not have such a density advantage as they claim: https://www.semiwiki.com/forum...
