no, but as the medium is cooled down the electrons loose energy and travel slower, that is why more and more current has to be pumped into the device.
It is also worth noting that the domain (either P type or Ntype) o fthe semiconducting material the chip is made from decrease in dominance as the material is cooled, theoreticalls reaching a point where there is no sense is ever doping the silicon to make it either P or N.
My point is cooling alone will not make the chip run faster.
Cooling is becoming increasinly more important in computers because of the higher currents being used to get more speed increases.
