Is IQ a relevant metric

  • the objective is nice, progressing, but practically does it work?
  • whatever you have, you have to make the most of it.

Correlation of highest IQs and progresses

the highest IQ are not necessarily those that make the biggest discoveries or are the happier, or make society progress

The accuracy of the test

technically, Im not convinced by the test accuracy I do believe that handling abstractions is fundamental which is, as general intelligence, what IQ is supposed to measure but that's just not enough

A network of requirements

to give a silly equivalent, of course you want the best processor you can get but what matters if what software and on what data your use it if you compute a crappy algorithm on biased data for something useless, what's the point?
