Moore's law is still valid: transistors on a chip are doubling every 18 months. However clock speeds are not getting any faster; my old PIV was running at 3.2 GHz, and you seldom see those speeds nowadays. So guess where many (if not most) of all those extra transistors are going. Yep, into the caches.
