Just look at this
E8500 and core i3 540 are both dual core chip and the gaming performance is similar, Hyper-Threading helps i3 540 to beat E8500 in Crysis 2 CPU benchmark.
Another good example E8500 vs Q6600
Just put back E7500 and run GTA IV.
I did actually end up putting in a quad core CPU (Q9450) just because I could, and benchmarks saw very very little improvement and not sure if there was any noticeable improvement in games at all, even with it overclocked to 3.2GHz too
Do u have any proof?.
