amd cpu, asus motherboard. how do i disable cores in bios?

so im having issues with bf4 beta and I heard that a good temporary fix is to disable one of the two cores on each module. my fx6300 apparently has 3 modules with 2 cores on each and bf4 isn't optimized for that yet. so I need to disable specific cores so its one core per module aka a tri core. anyone know?

  2. Actually, BF4 will use all 6 cores...it runs 7 heavy threads in multiplayer. Whoever told you to disable cores didn't know what they were talking about.

    there has been a patch since i posted this that solved my issue. the guy was saying it was because amd puts 2 cores on each module instead of intel which does one core per module.

    AMD does have 2 cores per module, but Intel doesn't use modules. There isn't really a performance penalty for the 2 cores per module setup that would be significant enough to warrant someone advising you to disable cores.
