12 core within a decade? i say give it a couple more years for higher end pc's rolling out the line. dual core will probably continue to be the bigger percentage for a while tough, low and mid end

I think it will tie i7, 8 theoretical is as good as 6 physical.

Until then if you just want threads and have some near perfectly optimised applications, there's always our friends at Sun who have the perfect CPU for the task :P

Their UltraSparc T* line is one piece of amazing design :)

I wonder how fast these babies will be on single-core performance, compared to the i7's. Because 6 cores are nice and all, but still many things are single-threaded. I currently have a Q6600 and I hardly ever have all cores at 100%. I'm now looking into upgrading to an i7 though, to see the performance per core go up as well.

that's the problem. they can make processor faster so they do it wider , still have not see the 10,0 ghz CPu Intel promise us 6 years ago I remember at the time , Intel have plan for CPU until 10 ghz. Now they have to force programmers to make multi tread software, because the technology hit the wall.

I wouldn't be surprised if Intel were actually able to produce a 10GHz 32nm Pentium 4, but at this point nobody would want one anyway.

I'm in for one if it'll slide right onto my current chipset board. IMO, this fits right in with the "bargain enthusiast" theme that I always try to keep going.... ;)

Heat doesn't really scale well with processor clocks.

Yes, actually it does.
