I've hear a lot of people say most games except for some MMORPGS or online FPS don't really take advantage of multiple cores/threads. Out of curiosity, i enabled viewing the usage or each thread on my hyperthreaded core i7 with 4 cores/8 threads and to my surprise, practically every game I've run multithreads just fine, they're definitely not stuck on 1-2 threads. If this is the case, why do so many people say that most games are not coded to use multiple threads or cores? I believe windows itself is the one doling out responsibility amongst the threads and cores, not the games.
