Million-Core PC

Is a Million-Core PC ever necessary?  If you are simulating jet turbulence in real time, then it is. Sequoia, the Stanford supercomputer at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, uses a million-core to simulate jet engine noise, air turbulence over jet wings, and scramjet engines. The computer has also allowed researchers to verify the scalability of CFD algorithms to large number of cores. More information here
