Quad Core Optimized Games ?? - Page 4

post #31 of 64
Tests were done with Crysis using Vista task manager and a Q6600. The test reveiled
two things, one that Crysis made heavy usage of the windows page file and two that
2 of the 4 cores where at idle during the game test.
Later someone did the same test with a Pentium D 965 dual core with H.T. enabled and crysis was running 2 threads per core.
I personnaly did this test in winXP with a single core P4 641@3.6ghz., with H.T. disabled my core ran 100% and game play was acceptable at low settings and res.
With H.T. enabled My CPU ran at 50% and showed two threads, the game played well
at medium settings@ 1280X1024 res. this was with a pair of 7950GT,SC 512 in SLI.
(edit)
If Crysis is your game then get an i7 system

Don't know if anyone has said it, but I believe GTA IV benefits vastly from quads.

While running COD:WaW, I noticed all 4 of my cores were showing a ton of activity and that was the only real process running.

Oblivion and Fallout 3 will utilize 4 or even more cores, to varying degrees. However, you may need to change the threading options in the fallout.ini file.

Just about any game running the Unreal Engine makes full use of quads cores . GTA IV also utilizes all 4 cores of a system..................................and still runs like crap !

You noobs can't honestly saying Crysis doesn't use four cores are you?

Maybe it's because your using XP

GTA4 uses 3, hence y people with dual cores complain all the time on the GTA forums of slow performance. I see my CPU usage about 60-80% on the first 3 cores, the last core always has like 10-20% usage
