When will PC games utilize all of your cores?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Soooo..... With 6 cores becoming more and more frequent, and 8,10,12 core processors coming within the next year, when do you think that games will be able to efficiently use all of your cores instead of just the standard 3?

Utilizing all your cores will increase performance dramatically, and will possible open up a new dimension in the graphics/physics world.

It won't be too long before it happens. Using Dual cores for gaming seem inadequate for many new games, but it's still up there. With quads becoming the new "dual cores" for gaming, it won't be long before we see a lot more games using all cores of a CPU.

New pc's are a waste of power, nothing needs the processing speed we have now.
I mean, the space shuttle uses the equivalent of a 486 if i'm not mistaken, and he can go to space and comeback, how much more can you want? lol
