That is still unknown, but if I were to play it safe, I would say no as the game was most likey started in development at the same time the chips were and neither company knew when or what was going to be implemented in them.

Yes, I believe GRAW will support multi-processing... This is more of a speculation on my part, here are two things worth noting, thus my assumptions:

1) On May 17, 2005; AGEIA made this announcement- "Tom Clancy€s Ghost Recon 3 Powered by Multithreaded Physics Software from AGEIA." (http://ageia.vnewscenter.com/press.jsp?id=1115657068818)

"At the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), AGEIA" Technologies, Inc., the pioneer in hardware-accelerated physics for games, today announced that Ubisoft, one of the world€s largest videogame publishers, is incorporating AGEIA€s advanced physics technology into its widely anticipated Tom Clancy€s Ghost Recon 3. Ubisoft is leveraging the unique multithreaded capabilities of AGEIA€s NovodeX physics software..."

2) Use of NovodeX Physics: (http://www.ageia.com/technology.html)

"The NovodeX Physics SDK is a stable, high-performance solution for game developers to enable physics-based gameplay and effects in PC and console titles. A powerful API for the PhysX PPU, NovodeX enables game developers to inject both software-only and hardware-accelerated features into their games. The NovodeX Physics SDK is also the first and only asynchronous (multithreaded) physics API capable of unleashing the power of multiprocessor gaming systems."

But all these info is based on what I've read to date, my two cents... Can a DEV confirm?
