How many cores for gaming ?

Get a 22" cpu like me. On stock settings it's like an i7 but once you get red LEDs for the heatsink fan, we're talking 6000 fps in every game.

And yes my eyes can tell the difference

You can also just download more RAM.

not all of the eight cores on the PS4 and Xbox One will be available for games some will be reserved for system tasks. the rumor is it's two cores on each.

I hope you do realize that unless the games take advantage of multiple cores, more cores make them run slower right?

By the time a good quad core (i5) isn't enough for games, I highly doubt that any of AMD's current processors will be any good either.


Exactly. Buying a 4 core now is not going to hurt you at all for the time you have it (4-5 years). By then you'll be upgrading anyway and can decide if 8 cores is the standard.

What? Please do explain. This makes no sense.

You guys make it sound like Quads are going to be strong for quite a while yet.

I think he means its better to have less cores with a higher speed than more cores with a slower speed unless games are going to be able to use the said number of cores.

not all of the eight cores on the PS4 and Xbox One will be available for games some will be reserved for system tasks. the rumor is it's two cores on each.

Interesting but the same could be said for the PC right ?
