Ah...so it seems we could basically have twice the speed from one processor?

So how does hyper threading work anyway? Wikipedia time :P

hyperthreading is like fooling the computer into thinking it has 2 cores when it only has one.

so this basically makes the computer think that it's using one superpowerful processor. so im guessing that this it a temporary feature, like it wont be on all the time. ie: u can switch between normal HT(for multitasking) and reverseHT(for single programs such as games)

At least AMD is making an effort to combat Intel's Core Microarchitecture. Good.
