    Slight aside, modern computing needs are not necessarily about the processor...

    I've just edited a video that took 110 GB of data, near gave my laptop a hernia processing it.
    The video was 4K but the output was only 1080p. I had to keep deleting stuff it took up so much room!

    ..and that was just for a YouTube video of me walking up a hill!

    At that sort of resolution, it's all going to come down to disc speed, not CPU speed. I wouldn't like to think what it'd be like editing 4K or -shudder- 8K!

    Things are about to take a major leap on that front soon AFAICT, much is happening on chip based storage now (like Optane but others as well) and with the related transfer buses as well; seems Intel is locking on to PCI Express v5.0 for 2021 (with a brief use of PCI-E v4 more as a stop-gap solution) and USB4/Thunderbolt4 is about to be rolled out. A major leap on all fronts soon, at least from Intel.
    MorphOS is Amiga done right! :-)
    MorphOS NG will be AROS done right! :-)
