what about HyperThreading on I7 ?
http://forums.bistudio.com/showthrea...=1#post2141688The performance improvement seen is very application-dependent, however when running two programs that require full attention of the processor it can actually seem like one or both of the programs slows down slightly when Hyper-Threading Technology is turned on.
and they won't change that in Arma III ?
Hypertheading only leads to gains if the rest of the cpu is working 100%. It's damn near impossible to balance the load of a game so well that will lead to real gains.
Battlefield 3 does a decent job at this but even there the gains of hyperthreading are minimal and lots of people report stutter when it's on.
Arma 3 is a twitchshooter
Needs more rainbow six 1-3
If the rest of CPU is used by other apps then maybe. But IMO BIS doesn't care about such scenarios. If your application creates many short-lived tasks than HT is good.Originally Posted by Leon86
HT would work only on Intel CPU's, they are reluctant to make such changes anyway, we'll see soon. E3 is 3 weeks away.
Hyperthreading is a gimmick. A lot of people I know with HT processors end up turning it off because of stuttering/performance issues anyways.
Exact opposite is true. Define CPU instensive maybe?Originally Posted by Dingo8
