My System Specs

Default

I'd guess the lack of competition, and a soft economy rather than any limits of silcon. It could very well be that intel has RD for a current CPU killer but why whould they invest the money in putting it to market unless AMD was nipping at their heels, or the economy improves to a point where folks might consider a shiney new desktop PC even if their current one is still performing well.

The other question to ask would be if we've got any PC applications that are being held back by a lack of processing power, if anything (as has been mentioned in an earlier post) I'd say the industry is focused in the opposite direction of increased processing power by vastly improving performance efficiency.
