Ah I see, you edited your post.
How is it not verified conclusively? Please give me some more input so I may make my test more conclusive. Remember that graphics card utilization is very tightly tied to FPS.
Anyways, that's largely irrelevant to my original point. It's one game.
He is referencing games that USE MORE CORES, but he says they don't see performance gains after three.
That means, they use more than 3 cores, but you can disable all but 3 and the performance will be the same.
THIS IS TRUE, unless you have a graphics card pumping out enough frames to warrant use of the remainder of cores.
Please actually read my thread, and comment if you'd like me to try something else.
So please prove to me how it is a misconception that the majority of games will not see performance increases from 1-3 cores vs 4+ cores.
