Smoke Mac : Is a dual processor MacPro really faster than single Processor?

Hi all , i am wondering if anyone here knows if smoke on Mac would benefit a lot from a Macpro dual processor Xeon , versus a single processor ( so 8 core vs 4 cores..)

it is smoke a CPU intensive software ? and would benefit from the dual processor ?
I mean , any real world test experiences on this ?
thanks a lot in advance

Hi,

Smoke is a 64 bit multi-processor application so the more you can throw at it the faster it should go.
