    Games crashing when running on Processors with high core count

      Hello Everyone,

       

      It has been brought to our attention that some PC games might crash or show errors when played on a system with more than 16 cores / 32 threads. So far we have observed this happening with the following PC games:

       

      • Far Cry Primal

      • Dirt Rally

       

      Internal investigation has shown that this is a bug with the games code, and other games may show the same symptoms. The work around we recommend at this point is manually disabling extra cores.

      To disable CPU cores: go to Start > Run > msconfig > Boot tab > Advanced options > Number of Processors.
