General physical limits gives about 10e22 bits/s-cm^3, see:

Those appear to be talking about irreversible computation, so their figures aren't applicable here since reversible computation is thermodynamically reversible.

That's why it is so efficient, and doesn't turn into a hot plasma from its own waste heat.

I know it's an appeal to authority (in this case relevant authorities), but I tend to think Ralph Merkle and Eric Drexler get their stuff right.
