I agree, software is definitely lagging behind the hardware. The i7-980X has huge reserves of untapped performance, as do all the eight-thread Core i7's.

We could say that this thing will last for a loooonng time before an upgrade!
Absolutely. I think this is one of those rare PC components that will still offer mainstream-like performance 3 years from now.
