How have you reached your conclusion?

As far as I know, Squid is perfectly capable of using more than one CPU
- especially when using async IO.

A lot of Squid's work involves disk/NIC IO and memory access, and not so
much computations. So going from one CPU to more may not make much of a
difference with Squid.
