No doubt someone will object that you should be looking at SPECintrate, but outside of server type tasks, and obviously parallel tasks like compression, encryption, etc., programmers haven't fared that well at making effective use of more than two or three cores (and not always that many)

The impact of Moore's Law coming to a conclusion will be felt much more in the cloud than on the desktop. By the time it hits, mobile will have already reached the point of diminishing returns it is fast approaching so it won't make any more difference there than on the desktop.
