So with the arrival of a new year and a new decade, my question is this. "What can we expect in the coming year or even decade ? ". Early 2010 see's the arrival of the intel i7 980x gulftown processor, which certainly does look likely to be impressive with its 6 cores and 12 threads. High end equipment is getting cheaper and therefore more accsessible all the time. User's can now experience great performance at much more realistic prices. What really interests me and also the reason for this thread is what can we expect by the end of 2010, further than this how about 2020. What hardware will we be discussing by then ?
