    this is just going nowhere fast, i mean doesnt these people have anything better to do than make up quad and oct core cpus. ok in a server i guess someone can say that "i need this because i run things that would benefit from the x cores", but in a regular pc one could count on a single hand howmany applications would benefit, and i still see kids on dumb forums asking if they sould buy a quad core cpu, and the worst thing people ecourage the people who asked the question to buy one. you cant even oc the damn thing to run decent cpu benches. the next thing i hate is the PSU forums, but thats another story sor some other time

    the server market is the driving force behind cpu technology and it always filters down to the mainstream. Without significant market share of dual and even quad-core cpu's in place the software houses can't justify the price of making true multi-threaded software.

    We're in a transitional phase, soon you won't be able to buy single core cpu's at all, and a much larger, cheaper choice of quad-cores will become available from both intel and amd. With this more and more true multi-threaded software will appear, and to be honest, 2007 is the first year we will see MT games - this is a massive step forward.

    Yes, quad-core is not mainstream yet, but for quite a few power users AND the server market it is a godsend, and because of the aggressive move in the cpu industry with dual/quad/octal core processors you'll be enjoying multi thread games this year. If they hadn't attacked the market the way they have, i assure you we wouldn't be seeing anything like this untll 2009/10/11??
