Wow, I made this thread almost 3 months ago and im still getting rep
I was just going to let it go but, but if people are still interested, I could do some more benchies? Like L4D2, Metro2033, Bad Company 2, and Borderlands?

Those vantage scores are interesting! I would leave HT on IMO, but I also use virtual pc running linux, windows server, and xp while in windows 7. I dont know that it actually makes a difference but im assuming it does. I love being able to play Starcraft 2 while I have vpc or photoshop on a second monitor!

Great job, MrLinky! If it wouldn't be too much to ask for, could you please do a benchmark for World of Warcraft. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you! +Rep

great thread. I just turn off ht and my temps drops about 12c which is great. My loads temps are now 67c vs 78c with ht on. Im gonna keep this feature off for a while. I also drop the vcore to 1.28v

These results should be predictable really.

The application is either going to use the extra logical CPU's or it isn't. If it doesn't, then it won't benefit from the extra logical CPU's. It's more about what the application in question is coded for and not so much if you have HT on or off. As long as you aren't reaching 100% usage across all cores you should get the max performance possible from a given CPU with a given clock speed.

Don't the devs claim that Assassin's Creed 2 was threaded for up to 16 or something like that??

Would be a good game to test if you're offering

seeing as we're closer to ivy bridge now. maybe you should run some of the latest games to see what the results are? like the new alice game, dirt 3, brink, and crysis 2??

if i owned any of them I would run the test myself for you and post it here. If you don't have time I might just be able to do that...haha

Any chance you could do a test with an RTS game where theres a lot of AI? preferably starcraft 2 of shogun 2 total war if you have them (or if theres a benchmark i don't know of)

I think modern games just max out at 4 cores usage.......I'd be interested in seeing what a 2 core/4 thread vs. 2 core/2 thread would result in. Perhaps by disabling half your cores then comparing with HT on and off?

One game I could see possibly benefiting from the 4 core/8 thread would be world of warcraft, can you bench that perhaps?

Same here. 4 cores are enough for every game right now. Now when extra real core or logical are available there is no workload on them.
It would be interesting to see comparison between 2 core ht off vs 2 core ht on , on a game which can use more than 2 core.
This way there will be a load on the logical cores and we will be able to see how they perform.

Anyway awesome work , proves that 4 core is enough for gaming . +REP !

To all of the recent posts: I'm happy you find my work helpful, but I don't own the setup used for these benchmarks anymore (and new tests wouldn't be comparable).

For those interested in the 2 core/ 4 thread performance; I remember someone else did just such as test, although it wasn't focused on gaming. I will edit this post when I find said tests.
