Would be nice if intel at least shipped a single K series I3 and pentium CPU tbh...

Naw, you must design game properly to use multiple threads. An auto separation of stuff by compiler or OS will not help anything. Games typically hate latencies, and what could be acceptable for office application, or a server workload isn't acceptable for games.

AMEN!

Serious the gains with high end parts are never as impressive as the overclocking boost of low end parts. The shift to high end only overclocking was marketing genius by Intel as it plays to the easiest thing to impress so called "enthusiasts", high benchmark scores. Overclocking is at it's best and most useful with low end or old parts trying to extend their life.

High end overclocking is just an epeen cash grab and sadly the "enthusiast" market has embraced it.

Shouldn't even be an issue. I have no problem with Intel doing this. Someone to cheap to buy the -K version shouldn't have the same abilities as one that does fork out the extra cash, all be it in a limited amount.

No worries, I didn't mean to come off as condescending (though might have, sorry in that case). Just wanted to raise the point! thumb.gif
