Ok - now that there are numerous dual core processors out on the market (AMD X2, Core2Duo, PentiumD) and the quad cores are being released; I started thinking what - if any applications or games exist - or are slated for release that will harness the full power of these processors.

I realize that I can surf for thinks I shouldn't be surfing for, Defrag a drive, and burn a DVD all at the same time - but what exists out there that can use the combined power of both processors - or all 4 processors for quad based systems?

So I ask the collective - what do you know of that is either in production, or been released that can use both cores. I don't care if it's word processing, database, games, benchmark, or multi-media.

Thank you for your assistance.

Cheers.

Multi-threading? Dude, just go for anything you'd use on a 3D workstation like Maya, 3dsmax, even photoshop. All that stuff benefits from multi-core and multi-cpu systems. As for games... I don't know of any yet, but I read that Valve is working on a threaded gaming engine and plans to start building games off of that next year!

Hope this helps...
