The game itself is single-threaded.
However, you will still see a benefit from running on a multi-core system:
- Background Windows processes can run on other cores while the game hogs one core for itself.
- Like most applications, the game makes external calls to other software components, and those other software components may be multi-threaded. In the case of X this basically means things like drivers.
