2.5 performance patch notes - CPU affinity
From Patch notes 2.5 posted November 6th, 2013:
* Unlock the main thread CPU affinity by default. The parameter to change this is now called ThreadAffinityMain and takes, as its parameter, a bitmask.
Can someone elaborate on this statement please?
Is this different or the same as setting CPU core selection in 0 in the Rift.Cfg File so that it may use any and all cores as it sees fit? Or does it have nothing to do with that?
Thanks for any and all input and explanations.

Some of us edited the rift.cfg file to change this ourselves, but it is now a default.
