.. perhaps. THe thing is, squid is still a single-CPU process.
The disk IO can be offloaded, but you're not saving much.

Perhaps your OS can handle the network IO on another CPU to squid,
and the time squid takes to do its buffer manipulation can give the
network IO CPU time to nab a mutex and stuff the data into the
socket buffer, but thats a very long shot.

In short, perhaps, but not much.
