I don't run this project often(not enough patience), but running two cores on one exponent(0 and 1, or 2 and 3) achieves a testing time of very slightly over half the time one core would take. Something along the lines, of 50-53%. 3 and 4 core usage is not recommended, or at least not recommended on Intels 2 quad-cores. The new Opterons(Barcelona) may, may, be a different situation altogether.
