Because a few years ago they realized that anything faster than 5ghz would be enough to create Terminator brain chips. So in order to stave off the robot apocalypse all chip manufacturers held a secret meeting and agreed to limit processor speed. That is until they can hard wire the 3 laws into the chips. Then things will speed up again.

/u/PraiseIPU is correct. This is why overclocking a CPU voids the warranty, because you're running the risk of your CPU chip operating so fast that it becomes sentient and starts trying to exterminate the human race.

More transistors per area won't make them faster. And why do they even talk about nanometers, it should be microinches. Freaking city overclockers trying to upclock their cycles will miss all the good parts.

All computer parts must be in European measurements. The goal is to make computers as European as possible to keep them as doscile to our control as Europeans are to immigrant control.

It is the upper limit with current technology. The increased speed is done by better coolers but not the chips themselves.

I have some of those. They're pretty old, but I do have eight of them.

Moore's Law was really more of an observation and predication than a law and had nothing directly to do with processor speed as it was related to transistor count. Moore himself revised it as originally in 1965 he stated it was every year and in 1975 he changed it to every 2 years. Intel says that it is now at every 2.5 years. Moore himself has said about 10 years ago that it can't continue indefinitely.

Oh shit. I should really pay better attention. Disregard what I said, it's a gubment conspiracy OP!

Because chip manufacturers have realized that it's cheaper and easier to just add more cores.

Intel tried to up clock speeds over a decade ago and found that the increased clock rate actually decreased instruction execution per time. Since then they have found a happy medium between clock speed and pipeline length (the part that allows for parallel instruction execution) and have found ways to increase power and speed in other ways. If you're interested in the nuts-and-bolts you should look into parallel process pipelining.
