Both are mathematically equivalent and rely on a number of unlikely conditions. Neither take the overheads of communication, synchronization and I/O into account. Having said that, my intention was to highlight the fact that 8 cores can still benefit a fixed workload, even with relatively poor parallelization.

This topic, and the article source are talking about a LP Server chip code named Avoton, based on the Silvermont architecture. Horribly paralleled desktop applications are irrelevant.
That being said, why is everyone perfectly content with slow software? The multi-thread processor has been around almost a decade and you literally cannot buy a single-core OEM PC anymore. Even the ULP embedded market is multi-core. You'd think enthusiasts and gamers would be pushing the envelope on the biggest performance increase readily available to the market at this moment. It's still funny, though. It's amazing how cyclical the hardware world is. It's just like how the Q6600 quads were a waste of money for gamers, and now quads are mainstays. 6 and 8 cores are a waste of money, and will soon be mainstays. It's just because people keep perpetuating the handicap that is the lowest common denominator. (People with older PCs or dual cores).

Most of it, has to do with how poor most API's are for handling threading, it is made hard by poor design choices, mostly unix influences from 30+ years ago. Allot of it from the abuse of java and the c langauge in general.

uarch is already hitting a wall, its logic density thats going to be the next push.

So yes. Servers. This is intel's contingent to ARM's making a move into the Server space. Also expands their development in the SoC/low power/embedded markets
