Software is written for hardware so it's a mute point to say the software doens't use it. exact same issue with networks latency and bandwidth. just imuo
In addition, how many of you actually know how a CPU works? There are immensely complicated things going into each one. Branch prediction, length of pipelines, registers. Any of you who have taken any classes involving memory layout and locations, and CPU architecture (or some assembly) will know what I am talking about in relation to the complexity of a CPU. AMD take sone approach, Intel takes another, Natural selection (or divine creation) took yet another.
