What kinds of applications do you envision will need (or be able to use effectively) a 16-core processor? I don't think the "killer app" is written that might be able to harness this kind of power, but we might be able to envision something.
Right now, we have a chicken and egg problem in that I expect too few ISVs are ready to use multi-core processors. After the hardware is more readily available, though, I expect an expanded set of threaded applications. But, can we think of what applications or application areas would benefit best/most/fastest?
