As new applications that require more of
our computers emerges so will it put more and more load on our cpu's. As 3D graphics is
being used more and more so will the need for an cpu and a graphiccard that can handle
these heavy loads on our computers. If someone has tried to play a game like Quake 2 with
full graphics on a Pentium 120 with a 3Dblaster so can you probably see what I mean.
At these times Intel is the leader in
producing the newest cpus and the other companies that produce cpus has a hard time to
produce cpus that can compete with Intel. While the performance of today´s processors
continues to improve from day to day so will the existing architectures based on an
out-of-order execution model require increasingly complex hardware mechanisms and are
increasingly impeded by performance limiters such as branches and memory latency.
