Sort of like, oh I got that old single threaded game engine I want to run it as fast as possible and they make a CPU for you for that, quad core with giant cache and high clocks, and it costs a fortune too.

Databases in general are fairly unoptimized and slow, well the whole web mostly is really thanks how they often make it, with ease of creating it taking precedence over performance. So it all gets turned into a crawl with Flash (kinda dead now), JavaScript on client and server side, Python, hell even PHP, Java, ... aka all these interpreted non machine code applications that run like a potato. Databases only add insult to the injury.

Seems the whole article is about showing Intel's and NV's marketing slides really. Plans, predictions, wishes for their corporate business.
