How to Turn On Hyper-Threading on an AMD Athlon
February 1, 2011
Hyper-threading technology is an innovation to allows a single processor to perform two separate threads of instructions as if it were really two separate processors. This technology was developed by Intel for use in the later-generation Pentium 4 processors and is therefore not available on any AMD processor. Hyper-threading technology has been replaced in large part by multiple core processors that offer more than one processor on the CPU, each capable of executing its own thread of instructions. Purchase a multiple core processor and a matching motherboard and install the 64-bit version of the latest operating system. Download and install all patches and updates for best performance.
