And why do you think it will be faster then 1 or 2 core? You have not asked about game performance. You asked "can Wine use?" - yes it can. But depends.
Wine coded in a way that it can use only one CPU/core for d3d/opengl/GUI at one given time. Besides most games won't benefit from all those extra cores running around. 2 faster CPUs/cores are better then 4 slower ones.
