Wow. 6 core finally coming to mainstream. 4 cores do seem adequate for the moment.

I wonder if more than 4+ core CPU's became the norm years ago would we have more applications and games out that take advantage of it ?

Just a theory but seems to me like Intel may be setting the trend for games and applications taking advantage of more than 4 cores.

Right now I am seeing most games make good use of the 8 threads on my i7.

The only major exception was Dark Souls 3 that was single core limited. (as in one core was maxed out and most other cores did nothing)

This should read 'Intel knocks the 6800K down a peg or two' haha.
I assume under their current pricing model (add cores and add price, no 'added value') the quad core HT i7 will maintain the ~$350 point and just create a new bracket in the $425-$475 mark.

So the mainstream catches up to my 5820K haha.

The only time I've ever needed extra cores is in the occasion I decide to do some video work and some sculpting in ZBrush

Surpasses actually. Especially with far superior power consumption

Yeah, I suspect they will create another bracket of CPU's where the 4-core i7 will remain at its price point and the 6-core i7 will be in the 5820K price range.
