yes, its a strange place to ask Minecraft questions. But the answer to my question doesn’t seem to be anywhere online.
my old i7 3770 based pc is getting old and I’m looking to upgrade. I make a lot of Minecraft content and build some very large machines that requires a lot of cpu power. It’s not uncommon for me to crash my computer when building projects from time to time, and therefore need more power.
why not upgrade then, Minecraft is only using 2 threads anyway?
well yes and no. The java based version only uses 2 threads but the bedrock C++ version can use at least 8 threads. And unfortunately those words “at least” is the problem I have. Because I seriously cannot find any answer (even from Mojang)of how many threads it can support. Now it would be logical to assume it’s probably 8 but this was a version created under the Microsoft ownership and was even its own splash screen brags about its hyperthreading capability.
Even the support of 8 threads isn’t actually mentioned anywhere and is a result of my own sys monitors.
‘the reality of the problem is that I need to build a pc that is mostly dedicated to a game with higher cpu use than GPU usage but have no idea on what the maximum specs of the software is.
so why come to LTT forum?
well your computer enthusiasts, and I figure if anyone has ever attempted to run Minecraft bedrock on a ridiculously OP machine, im probably going to find them here
