Fudzilla: "Intel has launched the Core i7 980X, a 3.33GHz six core aimed at demanding users who need an extra edge in multi threaded applications.
We won't bore you with the spec, as we're mentioned it quite a few times already. Several sites have already posted reviews, and although they are very positive, a lot of software just won't make use of the extra cores. However, a lot of professional software will be able to harness every single core and thread and 3D artists and video pros will love it. Gamers should probably stay away from it, at least for the time being."
