[Bill Davis] "Tom, the only thing that is absolutely clear from my experience lately is a major reinforcement of the idea that the foundational programming of FCP X is the type of code that was written for where the hardware capabilities of modern computers were going - not where they had been."

What laptop did you have before? I'm curious to understand better what your comparison is.

I don't think that "where the hardware capabilities of modern computers were going" has changed much in the last few years: it's been 64-bit + multi-core CPU + GPGPU + SSD for some time.

The next big shift is coming shortly, with newer approaches to GPU programming like DX12, Vulkan and Metal coming to market, but even then, that's more of a development change than a hardware one.
