Well, the recommend system requirements say quad core, so I hope it makes use of 4 to at least some extent.

:whistling:

From the recommended specs posted by BGS:

Windows 7/Vista/XP PC (32 or 64 bit)
Quad-core Intel or AMD CPU processor
4GB System RAM
6GB free HDD space
DirectX 9.0c compatible NVIDIA or AMD ATI video card with 1GB of RAM: Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 or higher; ATI Radeon 4890 or higher
DirectX compatible sound card
Internet access for Steam activation


I would assume yes.

Well, most i7s are quad core, so you probably don't have anything to worry about.

While the 970 and and above use six cores, I'm sure Bethesda, developing the game in a multi-core world (unlike Oblivion), have it pretty well optimized to where you'll get additional benefit if you do have above 4 cores.

Would be nice if it utilized hyper threading as well. 4 cores, 8 threads. i7 is a beast.

I'ts RECOMENDED is a quad core, so yes.

I want it to take FULL advantage of my i7.... games never take it above 10%, can't it just take another 70% or so?
