Is moore's law coming to end ?

So we hear that every 18 months CPU processors double in speed !!! This is a big myth !!! They get smaller every 18 months but this has nothing to do with speed !!



If you had CPU in 2006 and CPU in 2012 they will not be 2 or 3 times faster !! But may be 30% faster.



This is big shock for the public that thinks a CPU in 2012 would be 2 or 3 times faster than a CPU in 2006.



Why is this the case ? Are we coming up to brick wall with CPU speed?
