>>52352006 I'm just talking about how moore's law can only allow so much compactness in components to allow for better performance that the wall will finally be hit. Manufacturers will have to deliberately slow down performance progress while waiting for something better to replace the current transistor technology.
>>52352109 I'm using a laptop from 2007 right now that performs about as well as a smartphone from 2 years ago. Can't say the same if this was in the 90s, where your Commodore 64 felt ancient compared to your 386 PC even though they were no more than 4 years apart.
>>52352274 yeah although id blame that more on the way websites are developed you got all these frameworks to make programs out of documents and let stupid designers realize their ideas on their own. it's like architects pretending to be carpenters and making some insane monstrosity that only looks good from the right angle
>>52354350 I make my sites look just like modern websites but with simple HTML and CSS. Runs like butter on anything, keeps my customers happy and autists that will never visit the sites happy as well. It surprises me that shit like facebook and tumblr load 8MB of bullshit scripts for a simple static page.
>>52351960 Depends. Consumer performance has gone downhill. But server architectures and CPU's have been growing at relatively steady pace. For example when nehalem architecture was released backed in '08 you could get up to 16 DDR3 Dim slots you could get like 128 gb of RAM (Correct me if i'm not mistaken) and now with teh advent of DDR4 and haswell and other architectures you can basicly get 512 gb of RAM per CPU. It's a steady growth just on RAM capacity alone not speaking of PCIE and peripherals.
>>52354482 they probably track everything possible to track for marketing research, like where people move their mouse to get an idea if they were more interested in one ad than another. or what they should post more of in their feed to make sure they see more advertisements. facebook is so big i doubt their website is slow out of pure laziness, there must be something they are actually doing with the resources besides wasting them on inefficient algorithms.
>>52351960 for most everyday jobs it has been since core 2
>>52352006 *Maybe* in gaymes, but for most home use cases you can still use 10 year old shit just fine, fuck I'm shitposting from a Q6600 right now that feels no different from my sandy bridge or nehalem systems in terms of practical performance.
>>52351960 No, GPUs have been consistently increasing in raw compute power, the problems are in the CPU space where with x86/ARM, chip designers are hitting a brick wall when it comes to perf/watt since the prediction/reorder logic in the modern out-of-order superscalars is literally consuming 90% of the die space and power and they've almost sneezed every last drop of improvement from them. The only real solution is to adopt a different approach to CPU architectures that lends itself better to the increasing demand in performance and power efficiency, the Mill comes to mind as a possible alternative
