Comcast has no reason to use fiber to the premise because coaxial supplies all of the allotted bandwidth?
Blizzard makes so much money off WoW and has been for years now, so it bothers me that such a popular game from a major developer is so poorly optimized; it requires a decent PC to max everything (think raids and battlegrounds possibly with add-ons where more CPU threads could become useful).
An incentive would be Microsoft helping to fund the transition to further gain OS adoption because people would possibly use Windows 10 more if WoW showed a significant boost from it.
I forgot to mention the fact of new GPUs being capable of benefiting from async compute via concurrency (AMD GCN and Nvidia Pascal).
most pc users only have two to four cores. optimizing for all core usage with the game likely still being based off of legacy code would be a monstrous task.
the best option for the end user would be to just upgrade their parts which helps overall experience and not just how well people run wow lol.
im not saying it shouldn't be done. im saying they have no good reason to as of right now.
edit: most games, even well optimized ones still run off of one to two cores. it's commonplaceThis post was edited by sayaka on Aug 28 2016 12:23pm
