Camera Raw multiprocessor aware?

Hi I just installed CS6 design premium which I upgraded from CS5.
I notice that PS extended will only process one image at a time when saving files in camera Raw. It used to do two at a time, Is this a bug?

Just look at the per-core CPU usage in Task Manager's performance tab or the Mac equivalent during a multi-file Save in ACR and answer that question for yourself.

ACR is very heavily threaded and MP aware.

Thanks for the feedback.
Camera Raw CS6 seems to be quite a bit slower in this area but I could wrong.
I have checked Activity monitor and I can give a comparison, PT Lens is multiprocessor aware and it varies between 200% and 686% when processing images.
Camera Raw CS6 maxed out at 104% when saving jpgs - also while the save process was being done I notice that only one image at a time in being processed where as CS5 could handle two.
Could someone confirm if their version is also doing this.

Thanks
