What if Intel made a new 386 or 486 using new technology? 7nm tech, 64-bit, GHz clock and multicore. There would be no extensions like MMX, SSEx, etc. Do you think such a CPU would be much more efficient than a modern one? I would think they could fit way more cores on a die than they can now. I have a feeling it would be much faster. What do you think? Of course it wouldn't be compatible with most stuff now, but that's not the point.
