Indeed, a big thank you from me as well, although it took me a little while to find out about it and where to enable it: Edit -> Preferences... -> Synthesis -> Parallel Synthesis

It is also possible to enable multithreaded mapper and place/route by adding "-mt on" under the corresponding sections in fast_runtime.opt implementation options file.

It seems that you are talking about this option

 

-mt (Multi-Threading)
This option lets PAR use more than one processor. It provides multi-threading
capabilities to the Placer.
Note This option is available for all devices except Spartan®-3, Spartan-3A,
Spartan-3E, and Virtex®-4 devices. Multithreading is not available when you are using
-smartguide, -power on, -x, partitions, or a project without a PCF file.
Syntax
-mt on|off|1|2|3|4
The default is off. When off, the software uses only one processor. When the value is
2, 3, or 4 the software will use up to the number of cores specified.

 

described in teh command line Tools user guide for both par and map.

 

But isn't that file autogenerated?
