I dont know if we will ever be able to compute real time life. With the limitations of size the only possible way would be quantum processing.
I think it greatly depends where we go after current silicone chip tech, imagine if those graphene transistors IBM made that can scale up to 155ghz or the indium phosphide and indium gallium arsenide transistor that was made at the university of Illinois that hit 845ghz could be used with current/future architecture and at those speeds, how much power do you think a fermi card would have if the core could run at like 155ghz to 845ghz.

Yes i know it does not really work like that and the max transistor speed does not mean how fast the transistors can work in a chip but my point is there is a bunch of new tech that could replace current form silicone chips that could give one hell of a speed boost, personally i can't wait for us to hit the wall down around 8 or 10nm or whatever it will be.
