That's how I play games. Except I haven't all that cores.
denvera1g1 (4 days ago)
only $1800? i thought some of those lower core count xeons were in the $5000 range
denvera1g1 (4 days ago)
I wonder, with a quad socket server, running relatively low core count processors with high frequency, can you get the best of both worlds? Sure many of the current games seem to fall flat on their face with NUMA but that will hopefully improve, or maybe we can find a way to turn NUMA off for certain programs and partition that program to run on processor A and on memory controller A

Hey Linus was wondering if you know what a good setup for emulation is when it comes to GameCube, PS2, etc I know that there is tutorials online and on YouTube but I would like to see what you would consider as far as your expertise

doesn't more cores make it faster?

“Picks up Commodore 64 throws it on the ground and looks at some modern pc” “WOAH we still have this thing” lol, who else but Linus am I right 😂
Alex Jones (7 days ago)
I'm confused... So more cores isn't good? I've been looking into an upgrade and there are a couple of 10+ cores. Ridiculously expensive tho (Like Intel Xeon for 100 000+ SEK). Is it better to aim for a more common socket like AM4 or 1113?

On Fortnite you do teleport all over the place. Once my friend teleported from Lucky Landing to Salty Springs right behind a guy as he walked by and just destroyed him. That was on mobile so probably an extreme case.
Paul Schlote (8 days ago)
Try increasing the VRAM for the cpu using the command console or bios setup?
Imodium (8 days ago)
He's looking for actual solutions and you're just wasting his time recommending useless shit that won't help... so get cancer.
Paul Schlote (8 days ago)
Yo stfd why so negative?
Paul Schlote (8 days ago)
You can increase vram and sdram through the cpu itself. If you have that many cores he could give it a shot.
Imodium (8 days ago)
Stfu. If you know nothing don't speak about it.

cpu load is about frequency of cpu in cycles. not splitted in multiple cores. You are not getting it right.

you forgot to test more games including universe sandbox 2.

Still ran better than the a12 8800p. Though the FX 7500 utterly dominates it... in games.

How can 64 cores bottleneck a gtx 1060?
fss1704 (7 days ago)
ops, 1.3ghz.....
fss1704 (7 days ago)
most games are optimized for only one core, that run probably around 2ghz, plus the windows stuff in the background.

Linus, I have been doing everything I can to get into pc's and building them and gaming and all of it. But I run a Core i5 3400, 5gb DDR3 with 2 500gb hard drives sharing my files. That is all I have been able to get and I really need help. Would you be able to recommend any ideas for me? I have no idea where else to get stuff from. (Btw, I am a high school student that doesnt have a job and has no money) Love the vids, Keep them up!

Not if paired with an ATI Radeon x1600 and forced to use OpenGl on an old version of Mac OS X

damn a core2duo 2.66 would make the framerate get 20x higher than that atom shit.

i don't understand, what is the major problem for this case?? the Software or the Hardware?? when linus said the processor is not suitable for graphic usage, but i still doubt it could work better for another usage :( it is possible because the software problem??

It's normal, games don't work on all core. Games, need one or two core with more frequency...

Hey linus go to msconfig, and activate all the cores, because some of the cores are not activated, only the half of it will work on, activate the other half.

OK a question for the tech nerds watching this. My Games actually run like this, at 10fps, on a GTX Titan (original titan) and an 8700k... Fortnite gets to 60 fps then when anything happens dives to 10 fps or worse... I have no idea why as the GPU used to run on my 3700k and hit 50-70 FPS at all times. I've tried updating all my drivers, and the temps are all 50~ at max and average 35-40. Water cooled CPU and GPU running fan on max using afterburner. nothings O/C'd currently. I don't get why it runs soooo poop. ='( Any ideas people?

Can you do a gaming video on a high end flight simulator? My cousin in the US Air Force says that that they recommend high end processers with more cores and threads such as this. (Obviously not exactly this chip set) and that the GPU doesn't matter at much. I would like to see if it's true and maybe you can find a game that would actually benefit from a higher core cpu
Benihana (19 days ago)
Something like Total War should have been tested using its experimental option.

Andrei Argeanu (20 days ago)
What if there was a way to combine all the cores and threads. Like trick the system into thinking that it has 4 cores and 8 threads and when it uses a core it actually uses 16 of the physical cores. If this was possible would it be any good for gaming?
