modern cpus

The fate of a modern desktop CPU is to sleep for hours on end, up until the point that it is called to leap into action for a few seconds. Later, it will be pushed to the limits of thermal overload for quite a few minutes or hours, along with a GPU valiantly straining to produce triangles that will look like an explosion.

The fate of a modern phone or laptop CPU is similar.

The fate of a modern server CPU is to be run flat-out from birth to death, calculating cycles and epicycles and layers of onions and shifting the workloads from core to core, balancing fiercely.
