Steam use too much cpu
Steam (MainThrd) use half of my AMD Athlon x2 5000+ 2.6Ghz while gaming and not only TF2. This is a bug or steam need much better cpu on linux?

Known issue.
I'm sure they are working on it.

Same here.
Tried recently to renice steam to 20 and renice tf2 t -15. That changed the story entirely. Also, multithreading hangs the game up, or if using (with nvidia primus) PRIMUS_SYNC=1 shows black sreen from time to time, but performance increases.

That make me something like that. But I've quit my game(Serious Sam). The process MainThrd is running at ~100% CPU non-stop. And steam won't open. Even in terminal, steam do nothing, like start and stop quickly(no output).
