sorry to sound like a complete idiot but what exactly are threads? i kmow multi cores thata easy buy what do the amount of threads do, what is it?

if i am not mistaken, a thread is like a "virtual core". not sure how to describe it but im sure google and the search button could shed a lot of light on the subject.

oh here we go: if a core is a road, a thread is like a lane. twice as many cars can drive down a road with two lanes before causing traffic (when compared to a single lane road) except it is information we are talking about. it can process two streams of cars at the same time.

the anology is almost correct but using 2 threads on 1 core does not effectively double the data flow through the core hence the performance is not doubled.......

its like this....
while processing something mostly a core is underused and so it spends some of its time/processing power sitting idle...
so ht basically makes use of that wasted time/performance to start feeding the processor some other task hence increasing its overall efficiency and performance.....


hence so in multitasking ,rendering etc ht or hyperthreading plays a huge role.......
