Space seems reasonable, but not the 40Ghz processor. The latest trend in microprocessor development is parallel processing, where a single processor contains many cores running in parallel. You can buy 4 and 6 core processors now running at 3.2Ghz (3.2Ghz * 6 = 19.2Ghz power, but only if you're using software designed to take advantage of this). As software developers start writing more parallel software, it'll be more beneficial to reduce the speed slightly to decrease power consumption and heat and increase the number of cores instead.

So my educated guess would be we'll see processors along the line of 16-core 2Ghz.

Hi Andrew

Thank you for your input! You seem to be right. I am curious how parallel processing will improve the processing!

Actually, intel already has a 16-core processor. It's mainly for servers but I could see it hit the consumer market by 2014.

Thank you Anonymous for your comment. Good to see that we are on track with the number of cores for 2014. ;-)
