Excuse my bad English.
Well, considering the fact that it simply doesnt work on CPUs with high core counts, the only thing that can be done right now is to disable them. Complaining wont do much as the game has been released years ago and I doubt they will consider patching it at this point in time. Hyperthreading definitely helps with in-game performance, which indicates that the game has poor CPU utilization and support for multi-threaded architectures.
Concerning the RAM, I am running 64GBs and havent come across any RAM related issues in any of the Far Cry games. So there is no need to worry about that.
But I agree with you that Ubisoft should prioritize making better PC versions which utilize hardware more efficiently and have more compatability with higher-end architectures.
He didn't ask how to turn off CPU cores. He knows how and did that already, he is concerned about the fact that this game and possibly, future games wont have support for CPUs with higher core counts.

will more multi threded CPU's be needed in a few years? .. maybe
as they become cheaper an more of a market share uses them
but only if the game is programmed to use all cores equally ..
far cry 4 uses an much older engine ..so its no suprrise that no it did not acccount for the new mass core CPU's that really were not made for gaming .. but for learning apps and video development apps and servers
you never said what exact one you own ??? i'm not here to hold your hand or take warm showers with you ..... just cuz you spent a over a grand for a overpriced CPU
If you continue to have issues PLEASE
open a support ticket or contact Ubi support for your region
you can find phone number\ support options \ and support hours information @ https://support.ubi.com/en-GB/Contact#en-gb
There are no gaming CPUs with 20+ cores. He mentioned that it is a work station and that he occassionally play games. Which makes sense as nobody buys multi-core cpus for gaming which rely heavily on multithreading for increased performance.
Affinity wont work since the game wont launch for you to alt tab and make adjustments.
https://bitsum.com/ This program allows you to set affinity to individual .exe's before launching. Maybe try 4 cores, let me know how it goes.
Hi, thanks for your help ... I tried this program before and it does not work either ... the only way that the games work is to deactivate the cores and threads from the bios or from msconfig / boot. it's a shame to have to resort to things like that, also it's lazy to do that just for one or three games and then re-activate .... naaaahhh the problem here is Ubisoft
Exactly! that's what I mean ... as I said before, for example: if the memory requirement of any game is for example 16Gb, and my pc has 128gb for example, I guess I exceed the requirements but not ... I have to disable or remove the excess of ram because it is too much ram and the game does not accept it ??? Noooo .... It's the same with the cores / threads, it's ridiculous that they have limited that ...
At what time they said, or showed, or warned us!
RAM: Minimum RAM 16gb - maximum 32gb (WARNING) with more RAM will not work the game. (Example)
CPU: Minimum processor core i5 @ 3.50ghz - (WARNING) maximum core i7 no more than 10 cores / 20 threads because the game will not work. (True)
It is simple to say that in the FUTURE we will have these games in the library without being able to use them anymore, we will not be able to play again for their "limitations" ???
far cry 4 shipped in November 2014 ..and no users had a 20 core i 7 back then
(as far as i know )
also i know your mad bro .. don't blame the messanger .. this games engine was old when they made far cry 3 and 4
and they are not gonna run back and patch old games to run on NEW CPU's , as they have no Dev budget to do so
same thing with alot of my old games .. they do not run on updated hardware if i look back into my old dos\ win 95 \ 98 library
and no none of those are made by Ubisoft ..tech marches on ..some times yea with some games you may need to take extra steps to get em to run
if you feel they can fix it easily ....by all means contact Ubi support .. bet they tell ya the same thing i did man .. they do not have time or a budget to patch FC 4 for a 20 core CPU
no clue why you can not simply disable the cores for the game or any app like this
