Like I said. The physics at this point is seemingly reaching it's zenith with silly con. Unless they move to faster material, things aren't getting much faster as far as raw speed unless programmers can pull parallel processing out of their asses.. 5nm, 3nm, 2nm even the flowing electrons can't find space to move. Single core gaming speed is old hat. Time to rev up speed through multi-core processing.Well, IMO these systems are bullsh!t. They're throwing together parts which are easily sourced, then expecring the purchaser to have better luck finding a video card than they had. Video cards are made of "unobtainium". I've seen shortages before, but never, ever on the scale of this one. The heaviest cards Newegg has in stock right now, are GT-710s, and possibly a stray GT-730..
So, instead of having to go out of business altogether, they opt for what could only be categorized as a "desperation maneuver".
You know, "Moore;s Law", is nothing more than a coinage based entirely on popular mythology.
As processes narrow, manufacturing difficulty squares faster than transistor count.. If Mr. Moore wasn't merely pulling cliches out of his a**, Intel would be on a 5 nm process by now.
