I was pleasantly surprised to see that Left 4 Dead 2 also used all 6 cores. Not anywhere near to the extent of Battlefield, obviously. Higher core count is also very nice for folding!
But really, in my eyes, what's important isn't so much what programs do now, but what they are going to do in the next year or so. Based on the current trends, we are going to start seeing some VERY threaded programs.Edited by SectorNine50 - 7/25/11 at 9:34am
