Dual cores are pretty anemic in SC2 aswell, but that's a 2010 title.

I have not seen benchmarks for BF3 MP, could you show me one ?

For battlefield 3 single player, i3 3220 performs as good as the quad core CPU.



As for StarCraft 2 your benchmark shows i3 3220 beating quad core and six from AMD, and yet you claim that dual core is not enough for modern titles. LOL!

AMD Dual cores are obviously not sufficient for modern games, but Intel dual core with HT from are sufficient. End of story.

I'll try to find one, most sites don't bench MP since you can't get consistent results from it.

And that may be, but I'd hardly call minimum fps in the teens and a avg of 40. Good performance, which was kinda why I picked out your post. =P

It not good performance for hardcore gamers, but it is playable.

Also, AMD 4-6 cores performed even worse than i3 in SC2, so the issue here is not just with dual cores.

A [H] user did some tests, found here. Artificially disabled two cores on an i5 2500k, as well as various overclocks.

Seen here, the FX-8150 can almost match the 2500k, and beats out the Phenom II 1090T.

For the mainstream it doesn't seam like a a huge improvement but in the categories where they always push the tdp 130W+ with no IGP Haswell will be fine.
The lower they make the tdp the more cores and cache and clock they can put it. (I prefer the first 2 since distributed work is what they should be used for)

Kinda strange don't you think that the high end platform is a gen behind and I don't mean the mission critical parts also the enthousiast platform is kept back.
Back in the days of dual 1366 with on top of his game SR-2 board after that it was all like no OC even on evga boards totally locked xeon's and 1 generation behind mainstream.

Fair enough. =P

Personally I find anything below 30 minimum to be "unplayable"

Please don't quote toms hardware on SC2, they're clueless as to how to benchmark that game.

As for sc2, it only really uses 2 cores, but it loves high clocks on sandy and ivy.

It was the most recent source of CPU game comparisons.

I finished the campaign without problems, doesn't matter how many units were on both sides. And I have Wolfsdale.

Settings were:
Textures: ultra.
Effects: high.
Reflections: on.
Physics: high. (because it will not be SC2 without all that explosions throwing various body/canon parts in a correct way)
1920x1080

AFAIK models were on high as well.

Quad cores are anemic in prototypes I programmed, they are nearly as bad as dual cores, but what can you do when Intel is idiot and didn't release proper cheap 6-cores? Currently using 5 CPU system with 192 cores in each CPU, and it looks like I can use 30 cores per CPU without problem, 60 cores are so so when faced with limited bandwidth on DDR5 memory.
