You missunderstand. It cost a TON of money to develop good software. A company would be out of their mind if they decided to take their currently developed software and completely rewrite it to make it multicore capable, and trust me, its not as simple as adding a line of code or two, it takes a lot of time to correctly add in process forking and such. Its even more insane if your writing code for a customer base that still uses primarily single or at most dual core. So yes, cost is a very valid point. It has nothing to do with the cost of hardware.

But can it run...

It's kind of bad if it takes 1000 cores to be 20 times faster than a current 4 core processor.

Assuming half the cores equals half the speed, does that mean a 500 core processor would be 10 times faster, and a 250 core would be 5 times faster, and then a 125 core would only be 2.5 times faster than a current 4 core processor?

Diminishing returns?

You are making the assumption that each core of the 1000 core CPU is equally as powerful as a core of the 4 core CPU.

If 1 core of the 1000 core CPU was equivalent to 4 "regular" cores of today's CPUs, it would be 4000 (did I do the math right? I suck with numbers) times faster than a Quad, not 20.

of course! IBM WAS FIRST PPL WHO BROUGHT US COMPUTERS!!!
every1 loves those spinning tape drives...kinda orgasmic.

HOW DARE THEE INSULT G92?! 8800GT AND 9800GT ARE AMAZING CARDS! THEY MAY BE OLD BUT ARE STILL DAMN SEXY! IN SLI THEY CAN TRADE BLOWS WITH A FRIGGIN GTX280! THATS THE SAME AS A HD5830 OR GTX460 768MB!
DO NOT DISS G92!
now with that off my chest, DDR3 is NOT obsolete! did you read the definition of obsolete? now your just being unrealistic.

Quote:
It's obsolete because it has already been out for too long. People want i9 and i11 already, and they are products that Intel had already announced, but remain vapour. Just like now, people consider Athlon and Phenom to be obsolete because of Bulldozer
***? JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING HAS BEEN OUT TOO LONG DOESNT MEAN THAT ITS OBSOLETE.
and tell me WHEN intel announced something as rediculous as i11 and i9
link+pics or it didnt happen.

what part of product grouping do you not understand?
i already told you:
i3=mainstream
i5=mid range
i7=high end market
i9 and i11 are irelevent and NOT NESSESARY! what else does intel have? i24? i1024? iOVER NINE THOUSAND??

and bulldozer is not released yet. phenom I is obsolete i agree, but phenom II/athlonII IS NOT OBSOLETE. refer to definition of obsolete again.

Quote:
Intel falls into the trap of creating the expectation that they will provide platforms that conform to Moore's Law - and now, people expect that every 18 months, something new and doubled to come out.
hasnt moores law been called BS now since we are hitting a brick wall with CPU archs?

Quote:
People are now getting disgruntled, simply because the manufacturers have really been holding back, like the vapour that USB 3 is, or DDR4 is, and so on and so forth.
no kind sir, YOU are getting disgruntled.
BUT
i would like to see more USB 3 products. but it will take time! im sure USB 2.0 didnt gain popularity right off the bat.


Quote:
What is worse is that the market provides no alternative - at least in anything people can easily purchase. It also helps that Intel forces manufacturers to use GMA if they want to use the processors. I consider that to be monopolistic, since it removes choice. Of course, there is the AMD NEO, but there are so very few machines that are available that have that alternative. And to say that you want to stay away from Intel laptops that have GMA means that one removes themselves from any portable laptops, into the high end of high cost, giant sized laptops that are not suited for mobile use.
see? this is why i HATE INTEL.
its also why i hate capitalism...

It does - my machine at work suffers from lots of lag, and not just in Office, but in pretty much all applications. Of course, it could be the limits imposed by IT, since I am not allowed to fix anything up myself. But then, the C2Q is obsolete, and was a kind of freakshow of a processor from the get-go. Not that Intel lacks skills when it comes to oddball processors that have bad ideas at the highest cost.
well you must be using a crappy mainstream C2Q. get the extreme edition and be amazed.

Can't you understand the the monikers i3, i5 and i7 and just to serve as segment positioning and not to name CPUs themselves?

If Intel decides to keep the "Core i" line for the next years, you will still only see i3, i5 and i7. They are segments, nothing else.

Do you even consider yourself a serious member of OCN when you utter such idiotic crap?

Saying that Core i7 is "obsolete" is entirely ridiculous and laughable, since it's not a CPU but rather a line of CPUs. Intel could keep the Core i naming scheme for all eternity, would that make new CPUs obsolete?

See how hard you fail?
