Battle of Fins and BOXes

Do FDSOI and FinFET provide better performance and better power than bulk? Will FDSOI at 20nm bridge the 16nm finFET gap? Does finFET offer better cost benefits than FDSOI?  Does shamwow actually hold 20 times its weight in liquid? While the last claim is questionable, the jury is not out yet on the FDSOI vs. FinFET war. Proponents of both these technologies claim significant power and performance benefits but there is no clear winner yet as these are relatively new technologies that are still maturing and its too early to call.
