How many cores do games need?

Posted on Wednesday, July 07 2010 @ 04:22:26 CEST by

Bit Tech took a look at six games to determine how many CPU cores games need, you can check it out over here.
Do gamers really need a quad-core, or six-core CPU, or is a dual-core CPU still good enough? Which game engines are multi-threaded, and to what extent? We've aimed to answer these questions by running some of the latest and most popular games to show CPU scaling across cores. We've also tested Nvidia and ATI hardware separately because graphics drivers can affect how the system works - and of course, if the drivers themselves are multi-threaded it will benefit the gaming experience.
