CPU Breakthrough A Month Away?

I would LOVE to hear that some extraordinary breakthrough had been achieved, and that CPU speeds in typical home PC's can now exceed 10 GHz.

I read that at some point, we're going to plateau, because speed gains have been achieved simply by shrinking the CPU parts, and CPU's won't work with parts that are too small. So we could make them as small as would work, and that'd be it. Nothing faster could be achieved.

But then, what if some quantum processor were made? Or what if instead of a single square chip, they made a huge rectangular sheet of square ships. Instead of Dual/Quad Core, we've got Core factor 3000!!

Anyway, I just thought it would be cool to have faster computers again.
