[Question] What is the point in an i7 extreme?

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.
