there is a rumour around that Arma2 can be greatly optimized concerning cpu usage.
And this THESIS I want to discuss about.
Some early points to begin with:
- some players (Intel as AMD users) claim low cpu usage
- and little cpu-channel usage
- "doesn't seem to use the pagefile...I've watched HDD access and well....Theres nothing being written to the pagefile at all.", says Masterfragg
My personal impression is that Arma2 simply needs a very good cpu and this NOT FOR NO REASON but for gameplay, graphics, AI intelligence. So that's my thesis too.
My cpu does a 55 up to 90 %, mostly over 75 % usage which I find optimal - but I am no expert.
No troubleshooting discussion please!
No graphic tuning discussion - there are other threads!
