Today on NCIX Tech Tips Linus shows how a GTX 670 performs on a variety of different CPUs in some popular modern games. He simulates single core, dual core, quad core, and six core processors and then throws Hyperthreading into the mix to see how that affects things!

It would be great if you could update this for 2014/2015. Now that all EA games are going to use frostbite 3. What would be the optimal number of cores. Am I going to see any benefit from getting a core i7 over an core i5. Does hyper threading make a difference? Are games optimised for hyper threading? Or should I go down the AMD route since the PS4 and Xbox one are running AMD, which means games are developed for those first and ported to PC

obviously you need at least 72 cores!

So, would a CPU clocked in at 3.4 GHz with TWO cores be better than a CPU clocked in at 2.66 GHz with FOUR cores?

I know this video is rather old but I think as long as consoles exist the number of cores will be dictated by consoles because devs will tend to care towards the console hardware since that's where most of their games will be sold and since pc's aren't all the same. So just go with the same number as consoles at least with the CPU but it also depends if the dev decides to even really do anything with pc other than a port.
