Destiny 2 will be able to take advantage of high core/thread counts on PC

At Intel's E3 Press Conference, it was announced that Destiny 2 will support high CPU core counts on PC, including Intel's upcoming 18-core i9 Extreme.

A game which properly utilizes 36 threads? Not sure about that one.

They went from games only utilising 4 threads this time last year in the majority of titles to utilising 32 threads? Yeah, I don't buy that either.

Supporting and taking advantage of are two different things

Exactly, spot on. But that being said, games are getting better at core utilization, if Prey can be used as a "good" example. It seems to use all 8 cores on my Ryzen rig fairly well. It's not pinning all 8 cores / 16 threads at 100% or anything, but it does seem to spread the load out fairly well. It's a good sign IMO. Progress is good.

Agreed. Unloading more off any core and spreading it out even if it's barely anything is good. Just makes your cpu more efficient in the sense that it's consuming all this power but half the cores are doing nothing but running full speed. Mine as well get some use out of them. I still don't think it'll spread it out more than 8 cores.

They are implementing more cores. I think that is good sign for future games. Until 2 months ago no one even considered multithreading in games.

Supporting a cpu is the business of the OS. If a game doesn't take advantage of the extra threads at least to some degree there's no point in pointing out that it supports the CPU.

You just contradicted yourself.

Where? Any game running on an OS which supports the i9 cpus "supports" i9 cpus. It's irrelevant information.
