Unfortunately, changing an architectural direction isn't easy. Piledriver and Steamroller don't feature support for legacy instruction sets which means they suffer in some of today's most utilized programs. Had those instruction sets been retained, we would be facing a very different scenario.

Moving away from this approach will likely take years.
