I only can answer this question :

I've try to install FreeBSD 6.0-Release AMD64 on dual opteron 275 (dual core).

Everething work fine and we have 4 proc in the OS. 

Unfortunaly I do not have the chance to launch 4 big process to see the
thread performance. For example I known on dual-core PowerPC Apple
	time(4 x proccess)=time(1x process) [For the same process of course)
