How to use multiple CPU cores during synthesis?

I use ISE to develop FPGA project. I feel synthesis take much time for my particular application. How to use multiple CPU cores during synthesis?  And how to do that during implementation?

Thank you

Re: How to use multiple CPU cores during synthesis?

you can add "-mt on" on most of the tools. But the benefit is quite low according to my experiences. The ISE tools do not really use multithreading.

That's why i use a CORE-i7/9 with only a few cores but high speed and not an AMD Threadripper for example.

The default synthesis tool in ISE does not have -mt on option. Thank you
