I am hearing many people say that dual cores are becoming obsolete within the next year for gaming. I'm wondering how true this is and what this means in a few areas. Firstly: does this only consider the AAA titles to be released or in general? Secondly: is this only if you wish to play games maxed out, what about those that aren't fussed with "ultra, 144fps 4k zomg!", those in the mid to low range. Lastly: what about i3's they'e hyperthreaded dual cores, so does that mean they would be intel's new budget option? Or are you restricted to i5 or better if you wish to go blue team for gaming?
