Skyrim is single threaded. CPU clockspeed is very important w/ Skyrim. With the number of hours I've put in to it I think I should know by now.

What can I say it's running very good right now with lots of graphical mods and the FXAA injector on. Could make a video for you guy's but I think you would still try and refute it so i wont waste the energy unless you insist.

That's fine but it doesn't change the fact that some engines only utilize one thread, thought how that gets piped into what you can see from stats is unknown.
WoT is single threaded but there is load across the board. Nothing ever 100% though. So clock speed will matter.

On a side note, please do me a favour and edit your thread when responding to multiple people. We don't allow 'stacking' threads here one after the other, nor 'bumping' non-BST Threads.

Well then how do you exsplain the good performance I am getting after the many updates and patches ? Skyrim runs like butter now in day's even with mods. Weather it's singles thread and a million threaded i really don't care how they get it to run as long as it play smoothly. The particulars do not matter to me only the performance in game while I am playing it.

How to use the Multiple-Quote Feature at Hardware Canucks

Last warning. You said you'd follow the moderator's instructions, then didn't in your very next post.

Ok
Again, I am not disputing the performance you are getting, nor have I ever. I am merely stating on the mechanics of it.

Well you know how it goes people bash AMD CPUs when they don't work well and even when they are working just fine AMD CPUs still get hate LOL. I know for a fact and from personal experience that Skyrim was a mess for a long time after launch and it was not until some time latter that the issue with low performance on AMD CPUS was fixed. I can say for a fact that the performance on AMD CPUs in Skyrim is now acceptable and they offer perfectly playable performance.

But that wasn't what I was doing, nor was I implying otherwise.
Don't assume that I ask questions, or state factual information out of Bias for anyone. I don't get paid by any company (or I'd drive a better car for starters). I merely state what I know.

You'd do a lot better if you didn't 'reach' so much, or try and read between the lines.
