Call of Duty 2 gains SMP and dual-core support

By Justin Mann on December 26, 2005, 5:09 AM
We all love it when we get brand spanking new hardware for presents to tackle the newest games. It's even better, though, when software is written to take advantage of our good hardware in the first place. Games are still almost overwhelmingly single-threaded, so the advantage of having a dual-core processor isn't realized with games. Courtesy of Intel, Call of Duty 2 now takes advantage of dual core, hyperthreading and multi-CPU systems. This 1.01 patch is available anywhere, and in most of the supported languages. Though it was a patch written by Intel, it will still offer benefits if you are using an X2 system. Benchmarks aren't yet available on how much of a boost it will give us.
