post #1 of 11
Thread Starter

Probably increase. Hyperthreading creates a 2nd "virtual" core to help in multitasking.

Maybe like 1 or 2 fps. Not really worth it to disable it.
Very nice!

Check this \\/

According to Intel, the first implementation only used an additional 5% of the die area over the "normal" processor, yet yielded performance improvements of 15-30%.
Quote:
Intel claims up to a 30% speed improvement compared against an otherwise identical, non-SMT Pentium 4. The performance improvement seen is very application dependent, however, and some programs actually slow down slightly when HTT is turned on. This is due to the replay system of the Pentium 4 tying up valuable execution resources, thereby starving the other thread. However, any performance degradation is unique to the Pentium 4 (due to various architectural nuances), and is not characteristic of simultaneous multithreading in general.
