Default Re: Official Flight Simulator X Thread

It has very limited dual threading right now, and its only dual threading and not multi as there is no difference from 2 to 4 cores.

I've only seen one benchmark comparing a single core to two and four cores and both the dual and quad systems had exactly a 7% improvement over the single core. The test were all done on intel chips at the same clock.

SP1 is supposed to address dual core performance.

If you read the blog posted above he details the design decisions.
Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem Quad @ 4.0GHz
EVGA GTX 660 SLI @ 1046MHz
OCZ Platinum CL7 6GB
EVGA Intel X58
