Lol I know it was a little bug but I was wondering how much a title like would make people react
I think AMD broke the speed record with bulldozer at a bit over 8ghz last winter, which is quite great

Intel people was already seeing 10ghz+ when they were developping the P4, soon they discovered it would melt the computer case before getting even close to that lol

At the launch of the Pentium 4, Intel stated NetBurst-based processors were expected to scale to 10 GHz (which should be achieved over several fabrication process generations). However, the NetBurst microarchitecture ultimately hit a frequency ceiling far below that expectation – the fastest clocked NetBurst-based models reached a peak clock speed of 3.8 GHz. Intel had not anticipated a rapid upward scaling of transistor power leakage that began to occur as the die reached the 90 nm lithography and smaller.
