The source engine just added an option for multicore rendering. Do you leave it on or off?

Well considering you have a p4 there is no reason for you to have it on. I can't believe nobody has noticed this yet...

Might have HT, even if not. I'd leave it on anyway.

I know this threads a day old but when I have it on I get horrible lag and very unsmooth gameplay. Given that when it is on I do get a noticeable increase in performance however I dont need the extra FPS and the lag I get with it on sucks.
