Is carbon nanotube the only material found that would make a faster and more efficient computer or are there other materials or methods found that would make a faster computer as well? Here is an article on carbon nanotube

Silicon makes up 1/4 of the crust of earth, 1000 times more than carbon. Semiconductors don't need so much material.

Interesting, is graphene transistor harder to make then carbon nanotube transistor? I was originally looking into the effect of graphene as you pointed out. What is the difference between the two?

If someone would know definite answer to those questions, there would not be research for so many types.
You can check recent publications to see the current research status.
