    Yep, just looked at the wikipedia article about this again and a linked benchmarking (3.6.2 kernel) and up to i7-3770k, i.e. 1-4 cores showed small gains, the xeon 12 core (I think that this was 12...

    Yep and order #/production runs will also affect price, although I suspect that it will remain in the 100s to low 1000s so at the end of the day won't end up affecting price much at all. More...
