There's only a handful of games out there that actually make use of more than 2 cores, and hardly anyone plays those games. Linus did an episode for some of the popular games with CPU cores. Basically, anything above 2 threads (yes, even 1 core with hyperthreading) has no significant impact on gaming performance. It's all within margin of error.
