I know heavy duty CAD and graphic modeling computers use 10 plus cores. Friend of mine has used a 16 core for 3D CAD drawings we're talking sky scrapers.

- AMD FX8320 @ 4.2Ghz - ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer - G.Skill Ripjaws X 8gb -
- Asus Strix GTX 970 - Corsair Neutron GTX - Corsair TX 750 -
- Cooler Master HAF XB - Corsair H105 -
- Asus VG248QE - Corsair M60 & K90 -

Maybe, but games rarely use more than 2 cores.

These 12 cores are mainly servers and huge multitasking machines. If yoiu run alot of vm machines, its perfect.

However Nvidia has those sweet sexy tesla GPGPU units! Those are awesome!
