HPCwire: Natural science can be understood as the process of developing models that predict the behavior of the natural world, and we celebrate as great science the creation of the simplest models that give accurate predictions. Computer architecture seems, over the past decade or two, to have moved in the opposite direction, glorifying complexity at the expense of understandability and predictability, and even performance and usability. Highly speculative out-of-order superscalar microprocessors with north- and south-bridges, graphics adapters and raid controllers have evolved out of what was once the modest domain of hobbyists.
