Disable Hyperthreading? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
i dont recommend disabling it. i dunno if u plan to host any dedicated gaming servers, but if you do if hyperthreading is enabled it allows u to host multiple dedicated servers at once. i used to have lan parties at my high school and one afternoon i was able to host a counter strike source dedicated server as well as an unreal tournament 2k3 server with 512mb of ram at the time. it has its advantages. right now on it im running 3 virtual machines and with it enabled and installing the operating systems on the virtual machines it uses vry little processing power about 8% to 15%. remember this is installing the virtual operating system

NO DONT DISABLE IT. All in all you will only lose performance in the PC world by doing so. Having it enabled or disabled will yeild no performance gain in gaming however in multi-threaded apps you will get a performance gain by having HT on.

I have had several with HT in the past, disabled will actualy get you better performance, with it enabled it creates a virtual core and when this happens then it splits the clock cycles from 6 to 3 on each core, now granted if your not doing multi tasking then you won't see any differance, but if your multi tasking then there will be a drop in overall performance.

So if your doing single apps then disable it, and multi tasking then enable it.

In general most people multi-task more than game. Lets face it there will be times when you have multiple apps running while your chatting on msn so to speak...I would leave it on as you wont see much of a gain in games having it turned off.

Great. However can you please fill out your system specs in the USERCP at the top of this page so we can better help you in the future mate.

IMHO: Leave it enabled unless you have a TOTALLY clean machine (no anti-virus, anti-spyware, instant messaging, etc). Having the two virtual cores allows your OS to do things in the background without upsetting the games performance.

I know.....old thread but I have a question. Why on some motherboards is there an option to disable the HT if there isnt really a performance gain??

HT is an added feature after the P4 release. So it actually intended to raise performance.
