While this is true for most things, it shouldn't be applied in all
cases. For things like graphics processing, I would say every bit of
optimization is worth it, even at the expense of a little design
Keep in mind that having everyone in the world constantly upgrading
their hardware because of attitudes like this is not sustainable -- a
far better future would be where a standard computer is cheaper, needs
less power, produces less noise and heat, and just does its job.
