Intel already has immediate plans for 10 core cpus, those have well
functioning HT so they should be considered 20 core.  Two socket
boards are quite common, there's 40 cores.  4+ socket boards exist
bringing your total to 80+ cores connected to a bucket of dram on a
single motherboard. These are the types of systems in data centers
being made available to people to run their computationally intensive
software on. That counts as general purpose in my book.
