By nanocomputer I meant rod-logic or whatever the state of the art in hypothetical computing is. I want to see how it compares to standard computing.

I think the lure of nano computing is supposed to be low power consumption and easy 3d stackability that that entails as well. It it not sufficient to have small components if they are in a 2D design and you can't have too many together without overheating.

Some numbers would be nice though.
