Not a good idea! Computing requires accuracy by definition. We have not touch the potential performance of existing multi-core offerings at this point in time, because parallel programming knowledge is not prevalent and pervasive throughout the developers collective industry mind. That is where speed and performance can be found. Further, the Solid State Drive replacement of conventional Hard Drives and full exploitation of available technology like NOSQL for example will yield the higher performance we all would like to see in applications such as thinking machines.
