Well the real deal will be multiple dual cores on one board, like a quad of dual cores, aimed at the high end server market, dual dual cores for midrange servers and high end graphics stations or rendering farms.

You can do dual athlon MP's for what like $350-$400 these days?Dual Xeons for a little more, they get the price within a few hundred bucks of that after a few months of production, being 64bit, it would definitley be worth it.

Multiprocessing is going to have to be the next step, heat is becoming a huge problem with single cores, so is scalability.Die size is also limiting things too, as well as micron process sizes.

I d like to know what the power consumption is gonna be like, and how much longer till the low power CPU's start making an impact with desktop PC's, I cant see any huge increases in single core CPU's coming anytime soon unless the heat problem gets solved first.

Then what about 128 bit or 256 bit cpu's, that cant be too far off at the rate things are progressing.

128 bit in atleast 5 more years.... 64 just came out, and people STILL havent been able to go 64 since there is no official final release of a 64bit OS.... Imagine people trying to go 128 when they cant even get all the way to 64bit

64 bit linux has been out for quite awhile, at least the kernel anyway, not too tough to port and compile the rest to 64 bit, some like gentoo do this automatically, same with any of the other POSIX compliant OS's.The apple G5 has been around for a couple years now, although a portion of the stuff in OS X is still based on older 32 bit stuff, it has been recompiled and optimized for the G5.Still none of them are completely 64 bit yet........its coming, very very soon.

I think, most of this dual core stuff is aimed at servers and high performance roles and not gaming at the moment anyway, anything they can do to reduce the space needed, power used, and cost of having racks of servers around is helpful.

As hardware starts making these leaps and bounds, microsoft is going to find it increasingly difficult to keep up if their releases keep getting further apart.

Intel posted their starting price for the first release of their dual-core p4's. It's a whopping $975 base.
