Well, mutli-threading has always been a problem. A lot of apps don't scale well or scale to 3-4 cores. Here the 12-core machine will suffer.

What's more, currently the multi-core machines take a bigger hit in general performance due to poorer base and turbo speeds per core.

I'd say the 8-core is the current-gen sweet spot if you can afford it. Otherwise the 6-core. The D700 are a given to me as well as at least 32 GB of RAM (we went with 64).
