I know it's not the right place maybe to ask, but I wanted to get some helpful information from Intel professionals on this issue.
There's a game made by Sega/Creative Arts, Rome Total War 2 that was released exactly a year ago and it was basically unfinished and in a beta stage on release, they seemed to have released it just to meet a deadline, and since release they've already had 14 major patches to try and fix it, I'm no gamer but I'm pretty sure you'll never find another major game title release and have 14 major patches in it's first year. And for a lot of people the game is not much better than it was on release day, and the reason for that and for this thread is this.
The processor and graphic card performance is ridiculously bad no matter how high end your hardware is, and a lot of people have complaints about the game not utilizing neither CPU nor their GPU's fully. Me for example I have a i7 3930k 6 core CPU, and I will post a video link right here below at the end of the thread where I turn the game on let it run for a few minutes and shut it off to display the processor usage at the 1:50 mark, where you clearly see one single core overloaded to 100% while the other ones sit doing absolutely nothing. I've repeated this test with many different variations and different monitoring software, always the same result.
So my question is what do you guys think ?
The moderators on the game's official forum pretty much refuse to even acknowledge that there is a problem deeply rooted in the core of the game itself because that would be admitting they released the game incomplete, so they just keep reiterating generic statements on how they will continue to polish and improve the game etc, etc...
And now this is the part that will literally insult your intelligence, because they worked in close co-operation with the Intel guys to make sure this game was properly optimized for "low and high end hardware alike" those were their own words see video below, so to see a game perform this badly even on higher end Intel processors like I said literally insults your intelligence
here is my video (see the core usage at 1:50 mark)
and as an added bonus here is the video directly from the Intel Software you tube channel where they discuss just how hard they worked to make the game run very well
