AMD "AMD described its forthcoming quad-core processor, codenamed Barcelona, in a session at today's Microprocessor Forum. Details of the new microarchitecture on which the processor is based (codenamed K8L) have been known for some time now. Still, the event brought some new info, and here are some highlights that I've culled from some of the reporting on it."

Heck Norton needs 2 cores by itself.

But in reality who knows what kind of software and ideas can come to the desktop because of dual/quad/... cores. Its not that the public doesnt need it, its that they dont have the software to utilize it for something generally useful.
