    Nope, there are more GPU engines than that. VRAY RT, Thearender, Furryball RT, Octane Render is a very popular one. Scientific processing, number crunching, 3d modeling/rendering, video editing is another popular use for multi-core. The 6 core intels are good for video editing and if you can afford it then xeons offer even more performance. 8 xeons on a motherboard each with 10 or more cores. Games can also make use of the extra cores. Depends on the game engine.

    Iris graphics are good from what I've read. Agreed for most users on number of cores. I still want more cores though. Give me at least 8 with HT.

    I think he's after more cores but at consumer prices, I'm assuming, because I'd like the same thing. I'm on an overclocked sandybridge i7, the next logical step would be the 5960X, but the lowest I've found it for is £650, that's a lot to me, working freelance, especially as I would need new mobo, DDR4 ram etc.
