You'll also notice how cores 7 and 8 never came into use, and there was no trading between active and non-active cores.
It implies that the programmers care about cpu overheating. As you pointed out, windows (dont know about windows 8), in general, does not utilize cpu temps. Using multiple cores for a single threaded process should help distribute heat around the cpu a little better. I personally dont know if that's the main reason because stock cpu's normally should not be overheating, especially if cpu usage is not maxed.
All 6 cores were not in use simultaneously (or at least, most of the time, all 6 cores were not in use simultaneously). If all 6 cores were constantly in use simultaneously, then average cpu usage should be much higher. CPU usage would look like BF3.
Charts are a little confusing to look at because you can't discern when a thread switches from one core to another.
Charts can make a single threaded process look multi-threaded.
Do you still seriously believe PS2 can fully use 6 cpu cores, at the same time?
If so, then why is the overall cpu usage only around 30-50% on a 6 core cpu?
Why is core 1 only running at 70-80% usage? Why can't PS2 max a single core?I will tell you the reason. core 1 is not maxed because windows moves that thread to some other idle core.
You have zero proof, and the charts you link don't show any one thread giving up and handing it to another.
In fact, it proves my own point. All 6 cores are working at the same time. If they were trading off, you'd see 2 cores suddenly switch places in the graph, not have all of them be effectively flatline.
Also, programmers also don't care what temp you are. They assume full stock, both speed and cooling, and since stock cooling is enough for stock CPU, always, why should they care?

Kaldari is obviously a good pilot, but I said it before and I will say it again the Scythe and VS small arms need to be balanced against the other factions better. Play 20 or so hours as TR or NC and you will understand.
Oh look I have more rep than most of you chatting in here I must be 100% right no one can disagree with me.
Please tell me what it is that a Scythe can do or has that the other fighters can't do or don't have? The Scythe is just a bigger target, if anything.
We definitely win on cool points though. We gots schwag.

Scythes and whatever the floaty tank is called can both strafe.
Scythes pay for it with a larger target profile, and the floaty tanks pay for it with a non-rotating main gun. And it effectively glows in the dark from all the whatever is below it.Edited by KyadCK - 12/2/12 at 3:46pm
