Crysis Remastered suffers from single-thread CPU issues, just like the original game

One of the reasons most PC gamers wanted a new version – or remaster/remake if you will – of the first Crysis was due to the game’s inability to take advantage of more than one/two CPU cores. Back in 2007, Crytek assumed that future PC games would be focusing on single-thread CPU performance. As such, the original Crysis is heavily CPU bottlenecked, even on modern-day systems. And, unfortunately, Crysis Remastered suffers from the very same CPU optimization issues. Continue reading Crysis Remastered suffers from single-thread CPU issues, just like the original game
