Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War III is a game that gets very CPU limited at low core/thread counts, with minimum framerates decreasing by a third when moving to our system's dual-core, quad-thread configuration.
Pre-patch and post-patch performance were almost identical when testing both patches at each core count, though it must be noted that the performance difference was remarkably consistent between the dual-core setups when comparing each run. Even so, the performance difference is only around 3%, which isn't a lot to complain about.
