It seems to me that regular silicon is becoming harder and harder to utilize with quick growth. Intel's announcement of a tick-to k-tock cycle demonstrates that the leading CPU manufacturer cannot keep up with Moore's Law, and I would argue that Moore's law slowed even before this.

I think in order to keep up with Moore's law new methods like this will have to be implemented. Obviously this process isn't nearly in a manufacturing stage, or even taped out for a practical CPU design, but if first generation optical computing elements can operate at 90ghz, then there is a lot of room to grow from our 4-5ghz.
