Csgo? 2 cores. It does not take extra threads from hyperthreading well. Single core performance is everything here.

1 Million Celebration. “-threads
Pentium processors with 2 cores are surely good enough to run CS:GO, but you have to keep in mind that background processes (like browsers, music players…) will have more impact than if you had 4 cores.
look it can run on multiple cores, but it isnt necessary, it doesn’t boost FPS or performance as it increases the max FPS without keeping a stable FPS making it just as useful as only haing 2 cores, it can run very fast and perform will and fast with only dual cores as it is multi core optimized as well
csgo and any other source game requires a quad core cpu. also what gpu do you have you can check by using windows key+r then type dxdiag just click yes on the popup then wait once it opens up click display :tsmile: CPU: Intel I3-4170:tsmile: GPU: GTX 1050 TI:tsmile: RAM: 12GB DDR3, HDD: 2TB, SSD: 256GB.:tsmile: MOBO: Asus H81I-PLUS (Mini-ITX)
Csgo uses more than 4 cores, on 3kliksphilip video it kept increasing fps until 6. The other 6 are hyperthreaded, look: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj9cuHuTNVU OP, in my honest opinion if I had the money and purely games I’d buy a 7700k.
Moving from a 4-core to a 6-core configuration results in a modest 7% gain in Shadow of War but up to 33% in Assassin’s Creed Origins. Interestingly, of the six games tested in this pre-existing …
So as you can see, most games these days only require 4 cores, whilst most of them can use up to 12 cores, you won’t see a huge difference in performance past 8 cores.
A modern multi-core CPU does not have a “master scheduler unit” that assigns work to every core or otherwise distributes workloads. That’s the role of the operating system.
How important is the CPU for CSGO?
NOw the important thing I was wondering was does CS:GO utilize all 4 cores, or does it only use 1 or 2, making the cheaper processor worth much more. cpu is very important for cs:go, u should get the best u can afford, ofc at reasonable price.
How many cores should a game use?
This is a bit trickier, as games don’t always advertise how many cores they prefer to use. Some games are optimized for 4 cores, some can use 6, and some can even use up to 12 cores. So what games are optimized best for which cores?
How do I change the default CPU for CSGO?
In Options, use “configure default CPU affinities” and choose whatever cores you feel like experimenting with. -threads doesnt do much if anything (have 4 core processor) and somewhat even makes my frames less stable, it sucks. A quad core i5 is plenty for CSGO.
Is a 6 core processor good for gaming?
The jump from 4 cores to 6 cores has a lesser impact to gaming benefit than that jump from 2 to 4 cores. That isnt to say that the 6 cores wouldn’t be useful in gaming, just that the bottleneck is eased up a lot more when you move from 2 cores to 4.
