    On the surface, I would normally totally agree with you. But, contrary to what a lot of people believe, more cores doesn't always yield better performance. In some cases, you might actually hurt performance. Some tasks are better off having a cap on how many threads you use. Seeing as the disk cache is probably going to get bottlenecked by disk write speeds, I'm sure 4 threads is more than enough, even for high-end SSDs.
    I agree. It has been a theme over the past few years though of incrementally bumping these up instead of finding a more intelligent way of doing it.
