Talking about CPU heavy sims, I wonder if Intel's reason to drop Hyper threading and boost single core speeds in some of their next CPU lineup like the i7 9700K 8 core 8 thread cpu is the future for games.
Hyper-threaded tasks are being replaced more and more by GPU compute these days so I can understand that Intel are now testing the waters with non hyper-threaded CPU's that run blazing fast. Maybe pressure from AMD with a 32/64 thread CPU at half the cost of Intel's offering.
Good news for you sim guys though yes?
Edit: NVidia says Hyper-threading is a security risk.
