Why is single-core performance so important when it comes to things like vidya?

Also, why does it seem like even older Intel CPUs have much better single-core performance when compared to AMD?
>>

Because programmers (especially indian ones) are usually stupid and do not know how to properly utilize multi-core processors.

...if you do that you introduce all sorts of timing and race conditions and 99% of the time its slower than when you started unless you're doing some giant background physics simulation

Making bug-free multi-threaded code is a huge PITA especially in such a thing as a game where state needs to be shared and synchronized by many subsystems.

Non-single core CPUs are a fucking meme designed to distract everyone that moore's "law" was a bunch of bullshit hype.
>>
>>52426874
Utilizing many cores is hard to program for apperently, and not all processes games require are done faster paralleled from what I've heard.

And even my laptop intel cpu has better single core performance than fx-8350. Cpus havent been the bottleneck for gaming for ages.
>>
It really doesn't matter, CPUs have such little impact in games now-a-days, as long as your GPU is good enough, you'll be fine.

People who 'sperg out and worry about benchmarks are just shills for either company. I've used both AMD and Intel and can tell you that even though AMD is slightly more power-hungry, are just as good as most Intel CPUs.

That said, if you're looking for a CPU under $200, I'd still get a i5-4690k over an FX-8350.

I hope so

One of the reasons is that 2 AMD cores share 1 module. While each Intel core has his own module.

Not everything can be parallelised.
Take two CPUs, same model, one has 1 core at 3ghz, the second has 2 cores at 1.5ghz (and cannot be overlocked). The second one will only perform AS WELL AS the first one in perfectly threaded software, like encoding, streaming, and so on.
>>
The vast majority of tasks in a game are dependent on sequential completion, greatly minimizing the usefulness of additional cores.

AMD is shit.

>Consumes more power
>Runs much hotter
>AMDfags have to OC to feel superior to non-OC'd Intel CPUs

>>52426874
Because for a long time there wasn't much that is done in parallel.

Picked up.

>Runs much hotter

If an 8320 maxed out measuring 40-55°C @ 4.7GHz/1.45V on a Hyper 212 EVO without fans maxing out is hot (which is rarely the case especially gaming) then your Intel measuring at 60-80°C must be a sauna for you.

AMD a shit

That's why.

because old games aren't optimized to use all cores.
many new games however can use all cores
