Ring oscillators are simple circuits with which you can easily compare different circuit technolgoies. You simply scale the circuit to whatever your new design rules are, say 90 nm -> 65 nm, soi, etc. and measure the new frequency of the oscillator. This gives you a good base point for measuring and comparing the performance of the new technology.
