Re: Multicore Performance Improvement for the PC ?

In a standalone server/PC, probably not unless you take special cases such as high load web servers or other tasks that are well threaded.

From a server standpoint, it's more capacity to spin up either more or bigger VM's on a single server to use al those cores. Or stick to cheaper 2 socket platforms instead of moving to 4 sockets.
