Most Boinc projects use 1 logical thread to process 1 WU.
When Boinc is configured to use 100% of the CPU, it would in your case process 8 different tasks, each on a different thread. You can set Boinc to use less if you wish.
The exception to this is MultiThreaded applications, which can use many threads simultaneously. Not many projects have MT apps.

GPU tasks tend to use a full GPU + part of a CPU thread (up to 100%).
