Overload CPU usage?
What seems to be the case with this game is that on dual core CPUs, it uses around 100% CPU but doesn't stress your GPU - ie. it is CPU limited.
On my Q6600 it uses around 60% CPU. If I overclock the CPU, the fps does not increase. All that happens is, CPU usage goes down. That is with a 9600GT @ 1280x1024. So if you have a quad, it seems that the GPU is the bottleneck. If I overclock my GPU, or run at a lower resolution, fps increases quite a lot.
If that is what you are referring to then a patch won't change anything because it's the way the game is coded. It needs three cores to run at its best, like the console versions.
