why not just make like 100,000 core and get it over with, damn......

to all the nay-sayers that say "we don't even use 2 cores! what's the point?" the point is technological progression. hardware developers shouldn't slow down to accomodate software. software developers should speed up to catch up with hardware

I say if Buhhdapest > Conroe Then Quad FX FTW. Because FB-Dimms are WAY slow and cost MegaBux

I dont know why they immedietly work on the next big thing before fully utilizing what we have already. I mean Im still stuck on an old Athlon system and looking to upgrade, but in any event, not to many things are even takig advantage of dual cores, like 2 games will use most of the quad cores (alan wake/crysis) and already now we have 8 ..

Im all for pushing ahead with technology, but these new things tend to cost alot of money, and all anyone really gets out of it is to say "I have it" .. not "Wow, I can now run all my favorite apps much faster" ..

Seems we are jumping ahead and leaving cpu's with tons of unrealized potential behind, just to make the next big thing.

EDIT - Shadow does have a good point ... the hardware technology is obviously here and ready .. the software does need to catch up. However !!! Realize most people will not be ready to update their computers every 6 months (or even know how) just to keep up with the latest. Those processors will easily top $1000 when they hit me thinks ...

g'ah! what is with this myth!

Once apps go multi-threaded they will use as many cores are available, so while on a dual core it will use 2, and on this it will use 8!

Why is everyone saying this is useless? The same apps that can run HT on my P4 will utilize the Octo-core to its near max potential. Likewise, many applications can utilize quad cores to their near max. The only common ground applications that don't use this power are games, which are about 100 times more GPU reliant. Currently Quad-cores are bottlenecking GPU's abilities to preform in games, so why not go ahead and jump to octo-core?

I agree with shadow on this. It is a very good progression to have the hardware out before the software developers are ready to use it entirely. By the time the octo-cores are actually on shelves (along with native quads), the current quad-cores/penryns will be full optimized and the software developers will be ready to tackle the octo-cores, which will be so outrageously priced that not many will have them. You can call it pointless, but without this trend in progression in technology, the 8 series from nVidia wouldn't even be out now, as there aren't any DX10 games for it to utilize.
