For what it's worth I totally agree with you. If our per-core performance is capped then the only way to increase it is to add cores.

The problem is that most applications, even shiny new ones, can't use them. A few applications may be close to fully utilizing the current 4/6/8 core CPUs but we are nowhere close to using massive numbers (say 100+) of cores and won't be anytime soon except in extremely specialized cases.

This is a hard problem. As an experiment, try splitting any job you like into 100 completely independent tasks. There just aren't too many cases where that works. You usually end up with a bunch of cores waiting for results from other cores or just not being used at all.
I develop software for a living and my project is both desktop oriented and has very broad server applications. It would easily benefit from 16 or 32 cores or more. It's just a matter of careful design. It's more a historical issue than technical. If you write with conventional languages and conventional ideas then yeah you'll have a hard time of it, meanwhile people are thinking outside the box. It'll happen sooner than you think. With the state of x86 development, I actually think it'll happen with ARM processors first then be picked up by the x86 crowd.

OMG I also do that very same thing for a living!

As I said, there are a small number of scenarios where this works and a ton where it doesn't. Careful design is great, but if the actual problem can't be split up into a bunch of different independent tasks more cores won't help.

If you're writing server applications then that's fine, you have multiple requests each using a few different cores. If you're writing a desktop application using 32+ cores, well good luck with that, no matter what language you're coding in you have to separate that user operation into 32+ independent tasks.

Ok, but if you can't think of how to do it doesn't mean no-one can.

But here's a clue: whats the computing device, more powerful than any computer, that you're using right now? Did you know it's massively parallel?

And since this is way off-topic it'll be my last word on the topic.

And you can i presume? I notice you didn't refute my actual statement. Nice straw-man by the way.

You have to do the learning videos and take the quizzes to earn chips. Once you reach certain tiers of chips, you'll have your status upgraded.

What makes you think they will be sold for anything less than what being sold online no tax included?

I work at Staples, but I work office supplies and not office equipment (ie, tech). My store is on there, and I'm wondering if I can still sign up and get the benefits. There is a choice for "other retail position.. and I don't think our store even sells individual processors (which is what I'm interested in getting). And does anyone know do they verify it, do they have to get approval from the store manager? Or do they contact the corporate offices?

Also, if I sign up now would I be able to partake in these deals, or would i have to earn enough credit through the program first? Thanks
