I understand why Intel using the hyper threading approach though, roughly 20% performance with only 5% more die being used. These were the numbers on the chips a few years ago.
    Right. AMD used single-threaded cores in anything before Bulldozer.. Intel had hyper-threading in the Pentium 4, and reintroduced it in the i7.

    What we really need is a console that can utilise some excess heat to warm up a sandwich, melt cheese or provide other tasty snacks. (pop corn perhap) Superior processing power just to record the locations of 40 fingers wouldn't be very high on my list of wants for the next gen. I'm getting older now and dont want to have to get up all the time for toilet and food breaks.

    will it plays games and the games we all love, if so then the power is a small part of it in my opinion
