Lets say you had a multitasking battle between a 3.4 ghz ht and a 3.4 ghz dual core ouviously the dual core would win but really by how much and would you notice the difference.............

Another question is a 3.0 ht outperform a 3.0 single core by enough to notice the difference......???

I disabled HT in my work rig. To me it's worthless.

I have heard HT is useless but I have it running on my crappy HP pavillion a1140n (waiting for a new computer). Dual core would wipe out Ht because its 2 cores. 2 is better than 1 right. Think of this, Pretend you ahve a person solving a mathj question. If you have 2 people solving it toether it will work a lot faster.

If you like Windows 2000 Pro, you're better off with a dual core CPU rather than a CPU with HT as Win2K doesn't have built in support for HT, only for dual core. Consequently Win2K uses HT as if it were actually 2 CPU's, which isn't what it is at all and results in some pretty noticeable performance deficits with HT enabled...

Other than that, I would stick with HT over dual core as, unless you are a heavy load multitasker or run a small server, it's just not worth it really imo...

The difference between a CPU with HT Technology and a dual core CPU is very large, this is because you have two physical cores vs one physical core and a logical core split approximately 50/50.

The difference will depend on the application, but a dual core CPU will win almost every single benchmark you can run.
