In the future, what is now a new CPU will be an older CPU.

Can you explain your question a little more clearly? Do you mean what will a CPU be able to do in the future, or how it will work, etc.?

CPUs right now seems to be getting limited on the amount of cores being able to be utilized by programs(except easily parallelized ones), so basically Intel and AMD are beginning to integrate new features into the CPU, like gpu and, already, the memory controller. Integration is the future as of now, but some day we might have processors that use light for processing instead of electrons, which would push the processing power up many fold compared to today's tech.
Can't really tell what the future will bring, we might have some breakthrough in the next few years, or we may never find a better way to make processors work.

Best I could come up with, based on how vague the question is...

yeah right. I think the op should have a specific question as what he wants answered. I think the GPU's will eventually take care of the loads the CPU's do now.

Hmmm... Im not sure I understand the question, but in my opinion, one day, we will be able to plug our brains into our motherboards.

Doubtful, I bet we do it wireless.

As for what the cpu will be in the future, who knows, I don't work for Intel/AMD/IBM/etc

> In the future, what is now a new CPU will be an older CPU.


... reminds me of a Congressional Finding in the original
Americans with Disabilities Act:

http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode42/usc_sec...

“some 43,000,000 Americans have one or more physical or mental disabilities, and this number is increasing as the population as a whole is growing older;”


Yes, the entire population will be older tomorrow than it is today;
in fact, the entire population was older when I started this sentence
than it was when you reached the end of this sentence :) 

Although I don't claim any special knowledge of the future,
I'm quite sure that this latter prediction is reliable.

(Offered in the spirit of light-hearted humor.)

Interesting quote, that.

I don't think OP is coming back, by the way.
