I still think making it dual core and using the rest of the transistors as L2 cache is the way to go. Quad core is pushing it. This is going beyond the law of diminishing returns, at least for now.
A bit off topic, but anyone know why it's not possible to use the real estate of one of those cores to integrate a GPU core on there? I mean, if a GPU runs at the same clock speed as the whole CPU, wouldn't that make it multiple times faster than the current offerings? Not to mention having a large L2 for it and the ultra low latency since it's right next to the cpu and would also eliminate the need for a PCIe controller...
