oh my god this game utilize no amtter how many cores cpu have
.i should better upgrade to a core I7 soon has possible
utilizing cores is one (easy to achieve) thing.
maxing cores out is the trick. It won't give you any advantage, that loads are distributed on cores 4 to 8, if the workload reduces to less then 20% each - the 4th core alone could have handled this all by himself just as well.
(if they are this far anyway. With current games you are lucky, if the supply load for more then one additional core beside the 100%-core0 mainthread, that ultimately defines all performance.
Regarding the game.... I've heard of it only briefly... is it like Age of Empires?
Depends on your point of view. Coming from Tekken IV its nearly the same, looking from a c&c perspektive, the Anno-series (so far 3 titles - you're sure that you never heard of them?) is a long way behind AoE and puts in quite a lot Settler-like elements.
This means, that most of your time is spend of building up an economy - starting with agriculture (requiering expedition&expansion, as you can't grow everything on every island) and going up to mining, blacksmiths or expensive luxury-items like silk an jewlery. And obviously trading all of these items, if your production don't matches your requierments. (havent played for a while, but for example in the original Anno1602 the ressource "tools" was extremely important, as you needed them for every major construction but producing them yourself requiered one of the longest production-chains in the game)
Actually when doing a free game, fighting&weaponary is not even possible for several hours (well - you start out with an armed ship, but risking your only vessel in battle is a realy bad idea) and you can completely skip it, if you like.
do u guy know any good web sites to check game benchmarks like PCGH.bye the way PCGH is the best of the best.
umm - I think you answered yourself :ugly:
You sometimes find benchmarks on the sites of game-magazines or on general Hardware-related sites like tomshardware (computerbase.de, if you don't mind the article being in german), but I don't know any second magazine, that strictly addresses the "gaming" aspect from the hardware-point-of-view.
