Tomorrow's Chips To Stack Cores Vertically

When microprocessor manufacturers ran into increasing complications as they tried to make chips run faster, they shifted gears, and started building more powerful processors using multiple cores. We're still at the early part of the multi-core revolution, but researchers at the University of Rochester claim that microprocessor manufacturers will eventually run into similar challenges with today's multi-core processor design because of the "limits of miniaturization." So what comes next?

makes a lot of sense to build a chip uses a third dimension but I think stacking 2 and having a heatsink either side would make more sense as where is the heat going to go from the central core if you have 3 cores stacked
