That's actually an article on ATI's acquisition of part of XGI, but Intel's been in the process of phasing out HT since Smithfield was launched. Don't know why; HT is more often than not on the beneficial half of things...

Why? This is silly....

Noticed Intels new processors with lower clock speeds..

Resembling AMD? I have to admit, after switching to my 3700+ from my Prescott 3.2, I do miss Hyper Threading.

Like the Core Duo's and Core Solo's. Fastest Duo out right now runs at just 2.0Ghz. Only Core Solo i've seen is the 1.5Ghz in the Mac Mini?

HT never really made a difference to me, only major thing is that iTunes runs much better with HT on, but thats the only thing i use that really benefits from it. Still, when so much stuff can take advantage of HT, why phase it out?

HT is rather like oxygen: you never notice it until you don't have it any more. There are a small, but very noticable set of things that I do which HT greatly helped.

One of the primary reasons for removing HT, I suspect, is to save die space. The logic does take up real estate, and when you have multiple cores in teh first place, the presence of HT becomes somewhat redundant. It's still useful, but not as much.

its gone, for now. This technology can support 8 threads (or so i read) per core! i believe it will make a comeback in a few years once multi thread apps are the norm, i could be wrong
