Actually, After Effects 7.0 and earlier is NOT multi-threaded.

AE CS3 does take advantage of multiple cores, but any version prior is lacking. You will see a speed increase with more cores using 7.0, but nowhere near what you would if it were truly multi-threaded.

Since CS3 is coming out in a matter of weeks from what I hear, it's a sound investment to buy a multicore/multiprocessor rig. Problem is, for each core you should have 2GB RAM installed or AE will not allow you to render multiple frames at once. Since 32-bit PCs are limited to 3GB RAM, Mac Pros are a very nice alternative.
