This of course depends on the load as well as on MySQL configuration (ie
MyISAM needs to serialize all updates to the table)
I would suggest you to get http://www.sourceforge.com/projects/sysbench
if you're interested to perform multi CPU benchmarks.
You can also take a look at this article:
It compares some Single CPU and multiple CPU systems and has MySQL as
one of benchmarks performed.
