Default Re: Why Single Cores outpace Duals and Tri's.

How about this:

OP, give us gaming benches of any single core cpu beating a decent multicore. And no old games are allowed. They have to be 2008 or newer. No freeware games either please

I need to ask what the point of this thread is though. It seems to just be you being unable to accept that you are wrong, so you are dragging it out. Again.
Thank you.

What you described as the CPU using all it's power to a game and splits in half for another game when ran (Which I would find weird), that souns like the Intel HT technology.

Multi-cores can process more in a game than a single core, providing that it is well written for 2 cores or more, which is going popular.
