Even as the number of cores in general-purpose CPUs continues to climb, many difficulties remain in building systems that are capable of handling large volumes of network data. This is due to several factors, including the ever-increasing rate of network traffic and some fundamental limitations in general-purpose computing architectures. System designers are constantly seeking ways to expand their system capacity beyond such limitations.
