Love your work guys.

Hmm interesting point. Though I have my doubts it will ever happen. Just more cores and more efficient cores. It’s not all about core cycles, it’s about what it can do in those cycles. Like back in the day when a 2ghz athlon would beat a 3.2ghz Pentium4 in the majority of apps!   :D
