Blender and Dual Core?

Is Blender set up to use dual core? If not, which it probably isn’t, when will it be?

there’s a “threads” option in the render buttons which speeds rendering somewhat on HT and significantly on dual core chips.

however, if you have more than 2 cores… well there isn’t a solution for that natively in 2.41

[moving thread to proper forum]

Renders nearly exactly in half the time.
