I guess I'm among the 5%.

This is why I recommend the 2500K for new rigs, as most people will not take advantage of HT, especially when their primary use is gaming.

This is another reason why I run my 24/7 OC @ 4.2 with HT OFF.

Better temps, crisper computer.

I can't imagine how pointless it would be to get i7 in 08, when it first came out. Given we're in 2011 and %95 percent of applications refuse to use HT threads.

well... all about marketing my friend ... and it worked... everyone told that " yeah, i can feel it when working in windows, it's faster and all "

You can get all the cores working with appropriate software... but, it's very specific software. For a daily use in games, video and ocasional encoding... really, can't see this as a "absolutely needed feature" ...

LZMA2(7zip) also uses HT... 20% boost in speed over 4 cores it appears.

Don't use HT at all...
Maybe Unreal SDK uses it, but that still has to be tested by me...
post #16 of 17
idk loading maps into CoD Black ops uses it.

But not the actual game play.

I can understand your frustration on the lack of HT support in applications (FFMPEG anyone?). But, your statement in the title of this thread is an outright troll. I use Lightwave 3D every day and believe me, it uses hyperthreading to full advantage.

Lots of smart people here will tell anyone that asks, that if they are gaming, hyperthreading doesn't pay off. Then there are some who use hyperthreading everyday.

What a waste, this thread is.
