How well does GNURadio + GRC play with multicore processors? I’m running a

GNURadio would play nicely with it.
GNU Radio by default uses a “thread-per-block” scheduler, which means
(as the name implies) that each block you instantiate runs in its own
thread. This architecture scales very well to multicore processors, so
I expect you’ll see a nice boost in performance with a dual core Atom.
