Long time I though (and read!) for gaming, multicore and multithread does not make much of a difference.
I upgraded a 8600K 6 Cores, 6 Threads with a 9900K 8 Cores, 16 Threads, that are about the same speed, overclock 4.8 vs turbo clock 5.0
and the loading and menus are a Lot smoother now, system more stable, less system freezes, run my parallel 50+ browser tabs now without a problem, my parallel utility programs, WMR/G2/VR more stable etc. (I also upgraded my videocard, but that is separate)
who knew …
