Note that for really, really fast multiplication, you throw all sorts of synthesis techniques at the problem. The space (of possible multiplier implementations) is large, and people have been grinding away at the problem for a long time (note Dadda is from 1965—think about how many people have written papers about how to write slightly faster multipliers in the past 57 years). I’m sure that if you sat down and looked at the multiplier in a modern high-performance core that it would be nigh-incomprehensible to human eyes.
