Can anybody suggest a way to improve performance on a Dell T5500 with a 3.33 GHz xeon quad core cpu.  Inventor only uses 1 core and is very slow when handling large drawings.

Unfortunately, their is nothing that you can do. Inventor is currently a single-threaded application. (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=12107410&linkID=9242018)
Autodesk Inventor 2009 and later versions support multi-core technology in some very specific areas of the product, including:

    Animations and renderings in Studio
    ASM (Autodesk Shape Manager) kernel
    Task Scheduler
In release 2012 we added multi-core processing capability for

    Ray tracing
    Hidden line calculation in drawings (when the Enable background updates checkbox in the Application Options > Drawing tab is checked. It is on by default)

In release 2013 we added multi-core processing capability for

     Stress Analysis (no special options or settings are required)

In order to fully benefit from multi-core processors, you need to use multi-threaded software. Unfortunately, Inventor is currently a single-threaded application.
