I don't like to be the party pooper, but this is not very exciting. Standard Si transistors today are about as fast (remember the speed of a CPU is only very loosely related to the speed of the transistor). Only if these things are going to be a lot more power efficient will there be a chance that they will make faster CPUs possible. The current wall today with CPU throughputs is power dissipation, not transistor speed. Let's try not to get lost focussing only upon a single aspect the the design, a CPUs maximum performance relies upon many other factors, not just transistor speed.

for heat dissipation,it would require a processor made with superconducting transistors.
