My System Specs

Default Intel HyperThreading

Can you guys/gals clear this up for me?

I was under the impression that only the Intel i7 did HyperThreading, the i5 & i3 did not.

I've run into some peeps that were confident that the i5 did HT as well.....wtf??

Was looking on Intels site but in all honesty I do not have the time to read through it all to find the answer, so are there other Intel CPUs HT capable other than the i7?

Thanks !

Some i3's and i5's do have hyperthreading.The dual core i3/i5's all pretty much have Hyperthreading. The quad core i5's do not.

Ok, any particular reason why a quad core i5 would not have HT?

Sigh, so much for the short/informative answer, guess I'll have to do that reading after all lol.

its really easy lol. from 1155/1156 to 1366 you go from dual-tri channel
more pci-e lanes on 1366
and an i7 quad is an i5 with ht...in short. theres probably 50 pages of technicalities
why theyre different but look at it that way :p

so if youre building an intel system now, you go for : low end i3 with ht on 1156 till unlocked 1155 i3's pop out, mid end 2500k and higher end 2600k

those are the best bang for your buck and performance right now.
