Before I got bogged down with work I was working on two JSON projects - my own JSON parser and simdjson.

Both are very fast. simdjson is twice as fast as mine though. Mine keeps up with their nearest competitor.

Here's the thing though: I was running these on an old i5 with an HDD.

I had *no clue* how fast these modern machines were in comparison.

I mean, multiple GB/s even with my engine. It's unreal.

So what's the point of something like simdjson now? I was working on improving its performance even more, but why?

AMD was like, "nah - we got you. don't bother"

I feel thrilled and disappointed at the same time.
