And really, the contents of the roadmap in this article do nothing to make me believe their presentation. I'd expect that some will use it in an attempt to prove the opposite point - they top out at 2.4GHz this year because that completely dominates anything Intel has to offer. But there tends to be a little flaw in that logic - why sell something that runs at 3GHz for the 2.4GHz price, when you could charge twice as much or more?
