no. Your implementation (4.0.0-RC) use just single separated thread.

On current implementation, this scan all cores available on the system
(here i7 CPU = 8 cores) and divide all operations parallelizable. Each
core will run a parallelized part.

Gain depend of complexity of computation to process : between 40% to
60% of time is saved.
