If it's not just an intractable problem then I think it's likely in the long term that we'll go to 3D CPUs, where the processor is built in layers. Everything in this article about the actual manufacturing applies, plus additional problems of heat and much more complex fab process, but if they can get all that engineered, the sky's the limit again.

Well, I guess very long-term is quantum computing... but that's a ways off, yet.
