ask yourself this. with your 20% 3930k cpu utilization and 30 to 40% GPU utilization on the triple titan... is YOUR machine out performing a console at 100% utilization?
console will "force" game developers to be "less lazy" and develop for 8 core processors? are you even aware of what is involved in "programming" for multiple cores? do you understand what dependencies there are in games that uses multiple cores and timing involved in programming for those dependencies? there are alot of whiners on this form and not 1 of them even understand the real issues involved... if you REALLY want to max out your rig, go play a FPS.... don't come to a mil sim thread whining/bragging about your rig and how this game can't max out your rig... and least of all comparing console game development with computer game development. it's EXACTLY the type of console game development that has RUINED PC games these days... ARMA is one of the FEW games left that is PC only and I HOPE that stays the case... any game that has been corrupted by consoles are FAR less enjoyable these days....
so if you want to MAKE SENSE, please stay on the console side of gaming. leave the mil sim's to us computer people.
First of all you are taking my post way out of context just because you got a little "butt-hurt". I am not comparing consoles to PCs.
I am comparing game engine design of next gen consoles to previous ones as heavily threaded optimization will benefit PC gamers. I dont even own a console, only my kids do.
Second, just because the game is a "mil sim" doesnt give it an excuse to just use a majority of one thread of a multiple threaded CPU, that is just uncalled for. My initial post showing CPU usage in Arma 3 was to help understand what is causing this poor framerates and how to optimize the game with its settings and system configuration for the best outcome. Poor framerate is <30fps to me in this game. And sure i get a little upset when the game runs so poorly. Who wouldnt? The game is still amazing when running at a playable FPS.
And who the heck is bragging? You are the only one mentioning my 3 Titans. So you need to get off your little mil sim "high horse" and if you have something productive to say i would like to hear it. Other than that all i hear is whining.Edited by Swolern - 8/14/13 at 4:20am
