There was once a time when CPU clock speed increased dramatically from year to year. In the 90s and early 2000s processors increased at incredible speeds, shooting from 60 MHz Pentium chips to gigahertz-level processors within a decade. Now, it seems that even high-end processors have stopped increasing their clock speeds. Dedicated overclockers can force the best silicon to around 9 GHz with liquid nitrogen cooling systems, but for most users, 5 GHz is a limit that hasn’t yet been passed. Intel was once planning to reach a 10-GHz processor, but that remains as out of reach today as it
