Yes, I'll have to use multiple CPUs. It's a research project, with lots of image processing power required. I'll probably be using a four processor array.
One more question. I don't see in the SDL API any function to connect a thread to a specific processor.
Is that done automatically...?

If you want to use multiple CPUs, it's the only way to go.
You have to decide if this is worth the added complexity to your code;
in many cases, it is not. Doubly so when you consider that in this day,
lots of people still don't have multiple CPUs. Hyperthreading and all
this talk about Dual Cores will change that in the near future, though.
