So Team Fortress 2 Heard You Like Multicore Support

Nathan Grayson

Other Valve games, we’re sure you’re great and all, but we think Valve is playing favorites. Really, just look at the numbers: Left 4 Dead, Valve’s tossing you just enough of the ol’ meat and mead to ensure your survival . And Half-Life 2: Episode 3, we thought we saw you once in a tabloid with Bigfoot, but that might’ve just been this guy . Meanwhile, it seems like Team Fortress 2 gains some new appendage at least once per week , and, well, you can probably guess where this is going.

This week’s TF2 to-do adds multicore CPU rendering to the team-based shooter’s ever-growing repertoire, though it’s apparently not quite ready for primetime just yet. From the patch notes:

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
Well, that’s all for now, TF2 fans. See you guys and gals next week.
