If the server on which SQL Server is running has multiple CPU cores, SQL Server can run a single query in parallel, using multiple threads. In addition to running user queries on multiple processors, SQL Server can also use multiple threads to build indexes. Typically, queries that make heavy use of CPU cycles are good candidates for parallel execution. For example, a query joining several large tables and sorting the output before returning it to the user is likely to benefit from a parallel execution plan.
