It multiplies the number of particles in planetary rings and in galaxies... And also when you explode or turn things to dust I think.
If you set it to 2, it makes double as many particles (like if you had 100 particles in a ring, it says 100*2=200).
0.5=half (100*.5=50).

Yes. Absolutely correct.

That was way more simple than I thought. So I should turn it down since for some reason my US has been slowing down lately. It might even be that I changed particle multiplier and maybe forgot to put it back. What is the original setting?

The default setting for Particle Multiplier is 1 (one).
Turning this up can make some systems run much slower.
