It doesn't utilize 6 cores, but it does utilize 2 so if your CPU is too slow 2 of your cores will be lagging. I'd bet they would peak out at 90%+ if they couldn't keep up with the data flow.

But you're wrong, it doesn't or at least doesn't always.

Which would make this entire thread completely null and void, as the bottle-neck is the software, not the CPU.

And your GTX 470 wasn't bottlenecked by your 1090T just because it wasn't peggeed at 100% GPU usage all the time. Because GPUs don't stay pegged at 100% GPU usasge all the time unless you run furmark!

Nope, but when it dips to 50% and stays there until you leave that area its probably a bottleneck.


Edit:

Is super pi multi-threaded, or single threaded?

Fraps is a good utility

I find it funny how there's cpu performance comparison thread for a 7 year old game.

WoW does seem to be cpu intensive while in overcrowded cities, but it doesn't dip me below 60 fps. Or, if it does, it happens so infrequently that I do not notice.

But regardless, unless you are seeing that type issue while actually _playing_ the game (raiding, dungeons, questing, etc.), and not just sitting in town..., I wouldn't consider this an issue degrading gameplay.

But seriously, you cram tons of people and tons of flying mounts all flapping their wings around into a small area you are bound to hit some part of the system really hard, in this case it just so happens to be the CPU.
I would like to see the resolution and settings you play at. Perhaps SS too, I find it very hard to understand how you dont dip down below 60fps. I can barely maintain 60fps at 6048x1200 resolution, but that is a giving since WoW does not use my second GPU.
