CPU performance is improving so slow

Most likely because in consumer market, nobody needs a superpowered computer yet. Who buy 4960x really, not many people.


It's partially this. Most people use their computers for Facebook, YouTube, Office, etc. These things haven't really been requiring a faster computer even with improvements, while in the past, you needed a new computer every 3 years to keep up. With the trend of making computers lighter and more portable, performance also hasn't been as important. Desktops are still typically the most powerful computers, but they have not been as popular as laptops for years now, and tablets are taking over. The 3 year rule for computers is now replaced with a 1-2 year rule for smartphones.
