The new PostgreSQL 9.2 release is now able to scale far beyond what the PostgreSQL 9.1and prior releases were able to accomplish.

With PostgreSQL 9.1 the top end of scalability was approximately 24 cores and 75,000 transactions per second. In contrast  PostgreSQL 9.2 can now scale up to 64 cores and 350,000 transactions per second.
