Setting CPU affinity while gaming.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have the AMDS K6 6300 six core CPU, When gaming I set the CPU affinity to use 4 cores for the game im currently playing (If the game is 4 core limited) and the other 2 cores for the other CPU processes, does that help when gaming? I notice that I get about the same frame-rate maybe 1 or 2 more while gaming but stuttering is totally none existent. The game just seems smoother.

Yes it does help. I also do this trick. Some games have CPU affinity issues. It is these games whereby you'll see the best results after configuring the affinity.
