MySQL is multi-threaded, even on UP machines. It will work well on SMP.

Note howevere that threading in MySQL is meant to handle one
connection/query per thread. Thus, you will get better results only if
you run simultaneous queries.

Finally, remember that some (not-so-fine-grained) locking happens on
write operations, and that your disk subsystem is hardly
multithread. Database design will make the difference.
