The multicore boom is just as silly as the mega and gigahertz race. No-one really needs that much computing power. When I say no-one, I really mean it: you think you do, but in reality you could do everything you do now with machines from ten years ago.

Speak for yourself. We routinely process jobs that take many days to run. They are already distributed to multiple dual-core worker machines. We would greatly benefit from much more powerful machines (for the money) with more cores per box. More cores per box would help us somewhat more than more boxes for the same cost.

I don't think our company is anything special. We're not some fancy schmancy research lab or something. Just a company that chugs through lots of data in our daily course of business.
