Yeah until you try programming sh!t that´s supposed to run on 8+ processors.
Which doesn´t work, except for highly specialized computing problems.
And we already got hardware taking care of these cases, called graphic cards.

So yeah, in future the normal CPU will still need to be big and beefy and maybe have 3 bros tops on die. Everything else is pure marketing speak.

It's not that it's impossible, it's just very hard to juggle things around like that and still keep everything coordinated.

The way a single cpu works is that it switches back and forth between different programs very quickly to create the illusion of multitasking. With multiple cores, it becomes possible to have separate tasks running on each core simultaneously, and programs that fork out to multiple cores. The problems arise when these different cores need to share information, or work on the same files, or use the same devices.

This will require a wholly new style of programming, and probably some specialized cache and bus systems to coordinate. It is totally doable, we just don't have enough people using enough computers with enough cpu cores to have developed these skills yet.
