    it is when a single processor has more then one core, for example mine has 4 and can execute instructions on each one...

    for more direct relevance, before multicore support my fps was 50-90, after it was enabled I get from 110-170 fps...and it is stable!!!

    Given the recent SDK update claiming a fix to custom particles, someone should check to see if this has propagated to TF2 with today's update.

    If you can tell us what kind of processor you have, we can tell you.
    (Right-click "My Computer" and choose Properties. It should say what kind of CPU you have.)

    The lower your graphics settings are, the more this will improve your FPS.

    Pretty stable, but still a bit unstable.
    My fps like jumps from 80-190. And I crashed once (After playing for like 6hours total after not playing and stuff)
