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!

Example: Intel is currently (in 2014) at 15 (for the general market). As you can see, this information is readily available to you. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Mar 30 '14 at 19:33 : Netronome 216 core processor. : 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.

Tilera is VLIW (2 or 3 operations per 64-bit instruction word) not RISC. I don't know what architecture style Netronome uses, but network processors tend to be a bit odd. Also, @techie007 CUDA cores are not the same as CPU cores, the closest correspondence would be the Streaming Multiprocessor component (see David Kanter's RWT article on the GT200: "Each SM loosely corresponds to a core in a modern microprocessor". (Note "loosely"; GPUs have a very different microarchitecture from conventional CPUs.) – Paul A. Clayton Mar 31 '14 at 2:11
