Re: Crysis turns up nose at quad
Crysis demo is multi-core. I ran windows task manager under performance both cores were at 75% on my E6400 @ stock. I wanted to make sure so I went into BIOS and disabled core 2 and ran the CPU benchmark with rez @ 800x600 all medium settings. I averaged 24 FPS. Then went back and re enabled core 2, ran bench and got 38 FPS. Crysis is obviously using more than 1 core. I'm not sure why everyone thinks its single. I'm sure it doesn't use much resource on a quad, but dual definitely benefits.
Ran test on:
Windows XP SP2: nVidia 7950gt 169.04 drivers: 2 GB DDR2 @ 800: E6400 @ 2.13 Ghz
Rig: Gigabyte 3d Aurora Case - EVGA 680i SLI - Core 2 Duo E6400 w/ Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro - 4 GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 5-5-5-12-2T - EVGA 8800GT 512MB - Vista 64 Bit
