I find it very hard to believe anyone who says hyperthreading helps any games. EVERY CREDIBLE source says otherwise.
And the link I posted earlier.
How do people still believe that their hyperthreading does anything for games?
Also here is a link to a post here on OCN about this exact thing.
Hyperthreading doesn't do anything for games.
It seems like people are just trying to justify their purchase of a 2600k over a 2500k as someone pointed out earlier in this thread.
Still feels like I'm being trolled, as no one has any evidence whatsoever to prove otherwise. People just keep saying how HT helps, when in fact, it does not.

Adding more gpu's does not put any more strain on the cpu. It just evens the load between the cpu and the gpu.
If you benchmark a game at a low resolution and get 100fps with a 7970 where the cpu is the bottleneck, then add 3 more for quad 7970's, you aren't going to get more than 100fps at ANY resolution unless the gpu was still the bottleneck at that low resolution. Increasing resolution/adding gpus doesn't change the amount of work the cpu has to do.
And you surely wouldn't get less fps with more gpus unless there is a driver issue or the game doesn't support multi-gpus.Edited by icehotshot - 2/6/12 at 11:07pm
