I am not sure how the situation is today and how fast cpus are gaining power today.. When you read about improvememts in new intel architestures you can read aboul silly values of about 5% each new generation, If so one coud suspect that speed of cpus is now growing silly slow say 5% a year or something - but still I am not sure if it is really such slow (?) Could anybody answer how buch faster will we have a home pc 5 yerars from above - only twice faster? - maybe less? more? (I am not asking about gpu just cpu program speed) What is an amount of execution speed difference between the average pc model in the shop and say more expensive models from the shop, are the expensive models 300% faster or maybe just 30% faster ? Is there some reliable benchmark showing the differences?
I could say that when giving values it seem to me that people are overoptymistic for evemple i was doing some
test of some mine raytracing code running on 2003 or 2004 pentium 4 machine and strong 2012 machines (one core code)- it was about 5 times faster - this is noticable but this
is almost 10 years gap, now I think it can maybe grow noticably slower
