The graph lies. Look at the processes tab, and the CPU column. Also watch your GPU utilization. If GPU hits 100%, than it is the bottleneck. If it's below 90%, than check the CPU usage. For 8 core CPU's, 13% = single threaded; 25% = dual threaded; 50% = quad threaded; 75%; 100%... etc.

So some games, 8XX0 owners may see 75% usage, which means the game can use 6 threads. Some games can gobble all you cores too...

Interesting, i was trying to find out BF3 MP Core utilisation in this thread here http://www.overclock.net/t/1425028/bf3-64mp-benchs-need-assistance-from-8-core-fx-owners


This was my conclusion Thanks to S3mtex (Using Win 8)


4 core Avg 92% usage ; FPS Min: 17, Avg: 27, Max: 53

6 core Avg 83% usage ; FPS Min: 25, Avg: 35, Max: 74

8 core Avg 74% usage ; FPS Min: 23, Avg: 32, Max: 56

Yes it should make the cpu's work easier by offloading a lot of work in addition to utilizing 8 cores fully, so both cpu's and gpu's get a boost from, but it only initially in frostbite 3 games though
