My System Specs

If I go 1 more further in this ..... Intel's "Cores" "hyperthreading" is a actualy executable extention aka software vs in the case of a amd "modual" what Intels "hyperthread" does is actualy physicaly executed by a hardware/"core" or in the case of my above referenced "cam".

Peaple are welcome to correct me if I am wrong in how I stated/worded the explination.
Eh, I don't think that analogy works properly (comming from a car guy) as most DOHC designs are much more efficent/better than similar SOHC designs.

That being said most times I just call it physical hyperthreading.

ITs unique if nothing else.
