6+ core CPUs and SMP?

With the new 6 core CPUs coming out, and the eventual 8, 10, and 12 core units, how is the SMP client going to work with them? Is it already compatible, or is it only set up for 2,3, and 4 core CPUs?

    It already scales.

    It will scale, but you get more performance running multiple clients.

    I have a couple of workstations at work that are dual quad core's and I've gotten the best performance running 4 clients. To do that, you do need a decent amount of ram though.
