So because 1 game works better with HT the 2500K shouldn't be recommend means /thread?

epic fail.

I think this thread should be closed... if you are not trolling submit some evidence to you claim... others have submitted evidence to theirs with graphs and review and you have done none of the above except make your statements and opinions known.... Layman's terms? PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN...

Stuff that utilizes HT will perform much better, and stuff that doesn't will perform the same or very slightly worse. Overall HT is an upgrade. The 1FPS loss in games that don't like HT I won't lose sleep over.

I don't think anyone here is going to argue against that. However, the thread is titled for gaming and some people are making claims that HT helps in games, when there is no evidence, by websites or users, supporting those claims. More specifically 4C/4T vs 4C/8T, as in 2500K vs 2600K in this particualr case.

As my previous post shows, there are plenty of benchmarks showing how hyperthreading is useless for games.
Although if anyone can show a credible benchmark that proves otherwise, then I would like to see it so I can give some rep out.

Yea I kept going back and forth on the wording. Ended up editing it, appearantly after you had replied already tongue.gif

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.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1151970/my-own-bf3-benchmark-hyperthreading-on-vs-off
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.
True.

Hyper Threading doesn't work that way. It allows execution units (i.e. the processing cores) to work on other threads when the execution unit would otherwise be idle. The hyper-thread is parked in the extra resources. However, adding GPUs will not suddenly make the execution unit idle more.

Yes.

Honestly if the OP keeps posting things like this without showing the evidence, he should rack on those infractions. His inflammatory and malicious intent is overwhelmingly clear with his petulant behavior.

Now this is a scary place to say something different from long time belief lmaosmiley.gif

 

Hope we are not going burn someone alive for that today  tonguesmiley.gif

While I personally prefer the 2600K/2700K for gaming etc.. Both the 2500 and 2600k are at the top of the best gaming CPU's available!

Personal Preference comes into play here also! smile.gif

The difference is that we say bad things about AMD and then prove it with the wealth of online literature (benchmarks) that back up the claim.

This guy (and amstech as well) is just saying stuff without proving it with valid benchmarks.
