March 18, 2009 - Team Fortress 2 Update Released 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 Try out the new options if you've got a multicore processor, this probably wont improve your FPS whilst playing, but it probably will improve your loading times dramatically. If you only have a single core... well, this will have no benefit to you.. upgrade already!!
