Just like the cat toy, Nanoscience really is mind-boggling. Take a look at this picture and you will see that this circuit is a fifth of the width of a human hair. It was assembled on a single carbon nanotube. Even if it can only acchieve 50mhz it is still 100,000 times faster than any other devices that have been made with nanotubes. This really shows that it is possible to use nanotech to increase processor speed.
