AVG Free Performance on Multi-Core Systems?

Does AVG Free take advantage of multi-core setups? I'm thinking a CPU upgrade so that my daily scheduled scans for lunch go faster. It usually gets done by 1:30 PM!

    There are a few applications for which users should invest in as many CPU cores as possible, which include video encoding, 3D rendering, and optimized productivity titles, such as AVG's virus-scanning software. The lesson for the gamer is that long gone are the days when a single-core CPU paired with a powerful graphics solution would be "good enough."
