I was curious if your OS, and background/system tasks are fully multi-threaded throughout all the Four cores of a quad-core CPU. As well as all Eight threads, if that quad core supports hyper-threading. Most modern games, like Crysis, are only programmed to be threaded through Two processor cores. Which is why a quad-core CPU doesn't make Crysis run faster. Are there any games that take full advantage of a quad-core CPU? I heard that Far Cry 2 does.
