Lol, you have evidence that 6 - 8 cores are even used on games?

I can give at least Planetiside 2 as an example that's doesn't properly use my 3570K at 100% causing my GPUs to throttle down. Last time I checked StarCraft 2 is still poorly optimized at that too.

Other than that some console ports which end up being single threaded.

Big titles like Battlefield, Crysis are optimized though.

Well, I guess my point is that if you're having issues with FPS with 4770K and latest multi GPU configurations it's either drivers or a poorly optimized game.

I'll give you an example that requires at least 4 cores to maximize performance : Need for speed : undercover. Strange title from a stranger series that shouldn't be brought up for it had been ruined by EA wink.gif
Weird as it is but big proper titles that aren't old maximize cpu performance unlike games like WoW, SC2

You are just making ... those 2 games sound like they are the entire market as are the Intel fanboys. 80% of the wow players don't even give a damn about bottlenecks, if the FPS is below like what they like they'll just lower quality settings redface.gif
And you will be even more shocked when you find most of them playing on low-end hardware. Or even laptops rolleyes.gif

Try to prove me i'm wrong then if you shall as i have 1) highly-clocked 7970 2) hexa-core xeon and it's not stock either wink.gif
