Why no 6 core or 8 core ?

In 2006 intel introduced Core 2 solo (single-core), Duo (dual-core), Quad (quad-core).



Core 2 solo

Core 2 Duo

Core 2 Quad



And around 2010 introduced i3 , i5 and i7 that made Core 2 obsoleted !!



The i3 , i5 and i7 come in dual-core or quad-core.



I have two question.



1. Why 4 years to repalease the Core 2 ? And the i3 , i5 and i7 have bee out now for almost years at the end of 2012 so what is going to repalease the i3 , i5 and i7 .



2.Intel came out with a dual-core and quad-core in 2006 now we are in 2012 and still stuck with a dual-core and quad-core !!! You would think dual-core and quad-core will be obsoleted now and we would have a 6 core or 8 core by now.
