The difference between Hyper threading and dual core is similar to the that of dummy model and original product. The dual core is original set of product which is prepared via testing test version of hyper threading.
There's no performance difference between a quad core CPUwith hyper-threading and a similarly clocked dual-core chip. However, a dual-core processor may also implement hyper-threading to improveperformance.
I'm sorry that I have to say this, but please don't post things without researching a subject, often all that happens is you end up confusing people even more.Intel has not dropped hyper threading, they recently improved it, most of the quad cores are hyper threaded to have 8 virtual cores.Hyper threading is not an "untested" dual core, hyper threading and multicore systems are not even the same thing, and in majority of new cases they "both" exist on the same processor (as previously stated).There is a very large performance benefit when multitasking several low power applications. And that is what hyperthreading is supposed to help with.A quad core with hyper threading has 4 cores AND 4 virtual cores, so it has 8 logical cores to use wheras a dual core chip ONLY has 2 cores.Shall we cleanup and lock this thread now? Maybe sticky it for future people to enjoy?
Daks explinations would make great standards I believe
