>And the ancient supercomputers are now in our pockets

Actually, my cheap smartphone is orders of magnitude faster than the ancient supercomputers.




And yet the UI is still laggy :-\


They have to do a lot more work to render that UI. The framebuffer on an iPhone X is larger than the entire main memory of the Cray 1!


Mostly a software issue.
