so up until 1 game out of all the entire programs and games that can be used on a DC pc is coded for DC then those peeps will never buy a DC chip.

 

as if thats the case, you will never get one, as lockon is never gonna be coded for it.

 

you should buy it anyway, and if lockon is coded for DC then think of it as a bonus.

I voted no. 3.

 

My motjherboard would take a dual-core processor. AMD 64 X2 4400+ is a Toledo core and can be easily overclocked to 4800+ speed.

I'm gonna have to get some mileage out of the one I have for a while but yeah I'm going DC next time...Fighter Ops is supposed to be coded for it so that'll be a good incentive to upgrade when the time comes, imho.

I'm going to upgrade in the next couple of months from a lowly Athon XP1900+. I cannot see any point in NOT getting a Dual Core CPU. For me I'm going the Athlon 64 X2 3800+ with plan to overclock to about a 4800+.

Will be upgrading to dualcore regardless whether Lockon supports it or not ...

 

So far about 40% is saying that will upgrade if Lockon supports it ... maybe if AMD & Intel would "sponsor" adding dualcore support to Lockon they would get their return on increased dualcore sales ? ;)

 

If you think about it the hardware companies including NVidia & ATI are benefiting most from every Lockon realease ...

DC is in the future for me, I'm just not in any hurry unless some killer app comes along that supports it (be it LOMAC or some other game)

As a power user I can assure that if you had the money you would want a dual core. I have seen a couple power users go crazy over the upgrade. One was so impressed he even demanded that now his wife and kids would only work on a dual core box of thier own from now on...........

I also have a dualcare now, as I was looking into the future :-)

Centrino Duo T2300, only 1,66 GHz but very fast... as fast as my

3000+ Athlon64 when running single core...

 

I would wish that ED could implement multithreading capabilities into

LockOn.... With Dual Cores the Sim would be at last silky smooth!

upgraded my media PC to a dual core. Everything is smooth, it can be serving music, recording one TV channel, I'll be watching a second one while encoding a DVD, all with Folding@home running in the background and everything is smooth :icon_supe

 

Now I have to save up and upgrade my game-box. Now that the TripleHead2Go is coming out as well I'll have to save for a couple flatpanels as well.

I went from a 2.2GHz AMD3500+ to a 2.2GHz X2 4400. Hehe, same speed, but I got another 512 in cache.

 

Though it doesnt do much for lockon right now, I am sure it more than makes up for it in other areas.

 

That TripleHead2Go looks sweet. 3 monitors for lockon, and 1 for desktop. With a dualcore should be no problem.

 

If only LCD prices would come down some more :), though they arent too shabby ATM.

if ED plans to implement Dual Core support then they should also implement Hyper Threading support (HT), for example quake 4 is supporting both HT and dual core with one patch, i am no tech expert but i think it's not so difficult to support both dual and HT at once, so they should expand the poll to HT as well in my opinion.

By the way, AMD does have the same stuff like Intel P4 HT

After a few weeks of use I have yet to be really impressed by my x2 3800 (running at 2.4GHz). The only times I see it being used fully are when I'm editing/rendering movies, or when burning DVDs. That's ok, because it was movie work which persuaded me to try a dual core. But in general use I find no noticeable benefits from having a spare core sitting there waiting for something to do.

 

If I was buying again today I'd almost certainly spend the same money on a faster single core CPU (or at least one with a higher multiplier that would overclock more easily). MHz is what matters. If I did more editing I might stick with dual core though, it really does seem to help there, with both cores regularly peaking at 100%.

Sorry if im being Lazy but has any of the Dev's from ED gave thier own thought about the pros and cons of a dual core cpu in the upcoming Black Shark expansion or Flaming Cliffs etc etc?
