This question has been bouncing around in my head for as long as ive known about the i7 extreme. What would be the use of such a processor? I mean seriously, 6 cores, 12 threads, and i'm assuming each core has an equal or greater clock speed than say an i7 3770k. In addition, if i understand correctly very little is even capable of utilizing 4 cores, let alone 6. I can possibly see video editing, but it still seems like overkill... being $1,000.
