Not much time, here, but since you got no replies earlier:

is the matrix multiplication, or element-wise? If matrix, then numpy
should be using LAPACK, which, depending on how its built, could be
using all your cores already. This is heavily dependent on your your
numpy (really the LAPACK it uses0 is built.

are you using numpy.dot() for that? If so, then the above applies to
that as well.
I know I could look at your code to answer these questions, but I
thought this might help.
