TF2 now uses multicore power

Cor. Cor. Cor. Cor.

Valve has added multicore support to Team Fortress 2, as well as various other nips and tucks that will improve performance in the multiplayer shooter.

To unleash the multicore within, head to the Advanced dialog part of the video options screen and tick the Multicore Rendering box. These changes, plus a new batch of tweaks, will be added automatically when the Steam client is restarted.

Valve recently tackled and revamped the Scout class in Team Fortress 2. The Scout, along with the Heavy, Pyro and Medic, gains three unique unlockable weapons. Each not only has clever benefits but also significant drawbacks to keep the classes balanced.

These revamps, Gabe Newell told a DICE summit audience in February, not only keep the game fresh, but also cause significant sales spikes.

Only five more classes to go.
