Compute needs are rapidly growing, and individual CPU speeds have not kept pace with that increase. The simple fact is they aren’t ever going to be able to - we face the everpresent constraint of the speed of light, regardless of how many transistors we can cram onto a chip. Sure, stacking CPU cores solves the raw processing needs, but just cobbling more cores into a single server can’t provide the redundancy for zero-downtime or the scale for massive computing jobs.
