Question
Dear Scottgem

The Current fastest Desktop CPU is running at 4.4GHZ clock speed.

Is it possible to design fastest Desktop CPU in future which will run thrice or twice the Current fastest clock speed of 4.4 GHZ?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
The first PC Chip (8086) was available with 5-10 Mhz clock speeds when it debuted in 1978. Almost 40 years  later clock speeds by 400% (10 Mhz - 4 Ghz).

That would seem to indicate that faster clock speeds will be achievable in the future.

But I'm not an engineer so I have no clue as to the possibility.
