Since Theo's not here to do it, I'll point out that although DSP is related to CPU, Reason does not manage to fully utilize many current CPUs before it hits the DSP ceiling. I'm not an expert on this issue though, so I can't tell you exactly why that is, except that part of it is because Reason doesn't use hyperthreading yet.

If you really care, you might want to look back at the things Theo wrote because I think he did pretty extensive testing on it. I think he made the wrong decision about what to do after examining the issue, but he did put a lot of time into studying it first.
