    This is a general tech question.

    Just how fast are microprocessor speeds going to go?

    It seems Intel is removing at a rapid pace.

    You have Arrandale this year, Sandy Bridge after that, and Ivy Bridge soon to follow.

    How low can we go in say the next 5 or 10 years? Will there be single number nanometer speeds?

    Curious on thoughts.

    Electronic computing will reach a plateau at some point. When we start going quantum we'll really start to see the good stuff :)
