One of the dirty little secrets of computing is that the power of the processor(s) is currently way beyond our ability to program them.
It’s as if you have a V8 powered car but only feeding fuel into one cylinder. The rest of the engine’s potential is vastly underutilised.
So it is with multicore processors, which are like having 2 - 1016 (or much more) individual computers on a single chip.
