The audio configuration dialog (Options-Audio) has a Checkbox "Enable Multiprocessing Engine" on the Advanced Page. 

This Checkbox is  only active  on multi-processing (or hyper-thread) machines. When checked, the audio engine will use a dedicated worker thread for each CPU, and optimally distribute mixing and DSP tasks across multiple CPU's. You will notice significant performance benefits on true Multi-processor systems with this option enabled.
