Intel launches hexa-core processor

Most apps are not even multi-threaded to take advantage of dual core, let alone tri-core AMD Phenom X3s, or quad-core Core 2s and Core i7s from Intel.

Now Intel launches the world’s first hexa-core (6) processor: core i7-980X with HT simulating 12 cores, 3.33 GHz frequency, a whopping 12MB L3 cache, 1066FSB, and SSE 4.1/2 support!

Considering the average boot time hasn’t drastically reduced as OS become bulkier and take more GBs of your hard disk, do we really need all this marketing gimmick as AMD Phenom II X6 is also on the horizon?
