I really doubt the number of cores will scale up that much
Maybe it's just me but yeah
You knows funny?
We talk about computers taking up entire rooms in the fifties, and they said: Oh we will never have a computer that is portable (laptop) or small enough to keep one under our TV.
and when my kids are learning about computers (if they are interested lol) they will be like "dad, do you remember dual core CPU's?"
Me, " you will never believe this, but I actually have a working one in our basement!"
I asked my dad what is like to run DOS on on a 100mhz 486, and he was like here: "lets boot my old packard bell up." (this was a few years ago) but he installed windows ME also and it ran pretty well, boots faster than a lot of peoples computers I've worked on **granted it was a fresh install vs. a porn infested HP computer running vista 64bit with 512mb of DDR ram lol.
