No one's amazed by the amount of cores. We're amazed that intel is simply adding more of the same performing cores. The same can't be said for AMD. The 12 core Opteron does extremely poor compared to even a 6 core Xeon/980X/2600K. AMD's IPC is horrible.
That's why games are frequently bottlenecked on X6 CPUs. More cores won't help if games don't support multi-threading and your single threaded performance is such crap. Why do you think there's so many complaints about SC2/WoW performance with the X6's?

Seeing as Extreme Editions are basically Xeons without ECC, there should be a desktop version as well. So far it's always been like that.Edited by PoopaScoopa - 4/5/11 at 10:16am
