I know about single core,dual core and quad core processors,but I have no idea how many cores a processor could have at the moment.I mean,are there octa core,deca core or even better processors available on the market?If so,please tell me more about them,especially the average price.And there are triple core or penta core processors too,right?Because until now I've seen just even numbers (excepting single core),like dual core & quad core. Thanks!

http://www.netronome.com/product/nfp-6xxx/ : Netronome 216 core processor.
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/TILE64 : Tilera 64-core processor.
Both of those have RISC architectures and unusual memory and cache architecture, so programs need considerable adaptation, but they really do have that any cores.
