comment Why do we have to wait for I/O?
"while it could just do something else" - such as? It needs to work with data. If that data isn't in the CPU L1 cache, it needs to fetch it from the L2 cache. If not in the L2 cache, it needs to fetch from the L3 (if it has one). If it isn't at all on the on die caches, it needs to access main memory. If not in main memory... in needs to access the HDD.
