As we all know the chip industry changed it's approach to performances increment: we will not see 10Ghz processors (not even 5Ghz ones), but now we have duo-core, quad-core and 8-core or 16-core processors coming in a near future. But this is a problem for software developers: while it's easy to take advantage of a 10Ghz processor (just do what you always did, and your application will go faster because it will be run by a faster processor), it's more difficult to take advantage of four 2.4Ghz cores inside the same processor.
