Yes, easily. We have software that can use any amount of processing power. Take Draw, for instance. If you think your processor is fast enough to render a Drawfile, simply duplicate all objects 10 times - the file will take 10 times the processing time to render. The same goes for ArtWorks, even more so when using dynamic blends, nested dynamic clipping, transparency, etc. Exporting a high-resolution bitmap or generating a PostScript file for printing sometimes takes in the order of minutes for complex files. Any processor speed-up helps immediately. Of course, just for displaying dialogue boxes it does not make any difference.
