Re: What Does Hyperthreading do?
I notice a bit of a difference between HT and non-HT but not much. It multitasks a little better because it doesn't lock up but it's definitely no dual core. I have a P4 3.0 HT and it does everything I need it to just fine. I don't play games very much but it does everything else just fine, I don't see any need to upgrade yet.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
