    TF2 Multicore Update

    Updates to Team Fortress 2 have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The specific changes include:

    Added Multicore Rendering


    This initial release is aimed at testing compatibility, so the option is OFF by default

    To turn it on, go to the Options->Video->Advanced dialog, and check the "Multicore Rendering" option


    Other Changes

    Several performance improvements to decals and client bone/flex setup

    A variety of alt-tab and mode switch fixes

    Improvements to the way the engine initializes surround sound, fixing some specific hardware cases

    Fixed a crash on exit in Vista 64
    Please notice it is only testing the compatibility, basically i'd see this as a beta stage for now, some people are experiencing crashes with the multicore support on but others are noticing significant increases. It can't hurt to try the option though as it can be easily disabled.

    I'm also glad to see they've fixed the crash on exit in Vista 64, i'd been plagued with this for a long time, however it was more of an annoyance than a problem.

    Or would people rather I didn't mention about an update which people have been waiting for a long time and potentially could significantly increase their games performance? I also think it's better to try to get interest in a game which is very team-orientated rather than just feed it to the fishes.
