So Distribute!

Sitting with my new (in working-on-linux sense) pen tablet, with nothing much to do, I just scribbled down my newly developed understanding of why should we distribute processing and there isn't much point in increasing CPU speeds these days.

Zoom it to get a clear picture of the problems with just one processor.

That's true multiple processors certainly increase performance at the same CPU speeds. But adding too many processors is a serious draw back, since all the processors use the common memory bandwidth it will lead to problems like bottleneck.

Oh! Didn't think of that, if thats the case, the its even worse for multi core performance! Wooh this sucks.

Intel i7 has 6 cores embedded inside it. Maybe thats the upper limit of number of optimum cores.
