This is a case of the hardware outpacing the software - and it's been happening since computers were invented. I researched dual and quad CPU systems back around 2000 and found that the software support just wasn't there - so I stayed away from it then.
Now that dual cores have proliferated, the software has started to catch up. The same will happen with quad core (and multiple quad cores) IMO - once they become mainstream it'll be profitable for software writers to design software to support it. Until then, only the bleeding edge of software technology will even begin to attempt to support that many cores - so you're at the developer's mercy (they just can't sell enough to make it profitable - but there is a tradeoff for research to develop stuff for emerging technologies).
