Yeah though that's a bit of an self fulfilling prophecy. New high end CPU's don't sell as they aren't that much faster then the parts they replace and so they draw the conclusion that there isn't a demand for that type of CPU and as a result reduce the amount of money they use on R&D which in turn results in even less gains for the next round of CPU's.
If this keeps up we are going to end up grinding to a complete stop as far as semi affordable performance CPU's go.
Well I guess we can always hope ARM processors as they start to catch up to x86 are going to start forcing AMD and Intel to do some progress.
