But... Istanbul? That sounds mighty strange and foreign to our ears here in the holler. Looks like we'll have 12 cores before too long--but do we need them?

Istambul not far from here but the point is that you can have 16 core if its a math thing you need the pc for. Otherwise its a waste unless you get real fast hdrives/memory and increased bandwidth allaround.

Does this mean that you live in a strange and foreign land? I thought you hailed from New Jersey, that's far east from here. Signed, confused about maps. And what happened to Constantinople, it's missing!
A local politician has the last name of Constantine, bet his family had to reach pretty far for that one!

Sorry perhaps my bad english caused this, say you need to do fast computation or F@H or video encoding that requires all those powerhorses, this is what I ment.

Not your English, just saying I'm sure we could all come up with reason that we "need" a 6-12 core system, but in reality it's more of a "want". :D

Tilera's making a 100 core processor.

Interesting to compare to the neocortical columns of the brain. Turns out the brain uses millions of processors in parallel.

My processor is bigger than your processor.

My processor has wider lanes.

I want a processor that needs a processor to count it's cores... or I won't play with infinity anymore!! ":O}

Im looking forward to it myself, this P4 is killing me compared to my quad specificly for what I spend a great deal of free time doing, which is work with 3ds Max 9, building models, the more cores the happier I am honestly. GAmers dont need it, and If i wasnt doing 3ds max I would have gone dual core to save money, but this 6 core excites me alot, and what im doing isnt math
