1/ digikam use multithreading everywhere. so if thread maanagement is fine,
they canbe forks to another processor easily.

2/ for RAW decoding, we use LibRaw since few month. If you compile libkdcraw
with OpenMp support, Raw decoding will use parallelized computation. Tested
here on Intel double core, but never on AMD.

In general, i think intel multiprocessors architecture is better supported
under Linux than AMD...
