Is that entirely surprising...?! You could probably mine Bitcoin with that without much stress.

Is there any software that is capable of using that many cores?

Its a many hands make lite work solution.  Win 10 will handle this many cores and it shares them around whatever i'm running.  Typically i will have up the BBC news live, a CAD program or two and a handful of websites, some with video, and it just avoids any delays while it waits for resources. 

Its using 2nd generation Xeons (current generation is 4) and DIMM3 memory which is cheap relative to the DIMM4 built into a second hand city trader type workstation case, so very economic for the power.

So you’re using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut? Crack on.
